A Florida car thief had his getaway go way off course -- after he abandoned a stolen vehicle and tried to outrun cops on a golf cart instead.
The man, whose name was not released, is one of four suspects who reportedly went on a car-boosting binge at a Cracker Barrel near Palm City over the weekend. The men successfully swiped several vehicles from the restaurant and moved on to a nearby gas station, where they found an idling auto that they hopped into -- before speeding away a little too quickly and crashing near the golf course.
Three of the guys fled on foot and are still at large, but one got the bright idea to strong arm a bunch of geezers and take off on the rental cart, which has a top speed of 15 miles per hour. He was caught within minutes. (Newsweek)
