Published October 31, 2011
YSTAD, Sweden – A 62-year-old Swedish woman was charged for driving a golf cart under the influence, after being reported by other golfers at a course in the country's south.
The woman -- who had been acting "inappropriately," according to players at the local course in Ystad -- was found to be well over the legal blood alcohol limit when police were called, news website The Local reported Sunday, citing Golf.se.
She was charged with aggravated drunken driving offenses and escaped with a fine because of the cart's low speed.
The woman told the court she had been at a party the night before and had also enjoyed four shots of whiskey while on the course.
Swedish law does not discriminate between golf carts and regular cars in terms of drunk driving, police said.
