S.D. Woman on Golf Cart Arrested for DUI

RAPID CITY, S.D. – A Keystone woman was arrested early Thursday for
DUI – after she was stopped while driving a golf cart. A Rapid City
police officer was on patrol around midnight when he met a woman on a
golf cart driving on the road.

The police report said the officer put on his emergency lights and
tried to stop the golf cart because it had no lights and was a threat to
traffic. The driver would not stop at first but finally did after she
realized she couldn’t outrun the squad car, according to police.

The woman told the officer she had borrowed the golf cart from friends
at a party.

The officer smelled alcohol on her breath and tried to draw a blood
sample as part of the new mandatory blood test, but when the woman became
uncooperative, it took a couple of officers to hold her so they could get
the blood sample, the police report said.

After the results were in, Tawanna Martin, 23, was arrested for
driving under the influence.
