32-year-old Brice Williams was arrested Sunday around midnight after he showed up at a bar on an electric shopping cart from Walmart.
When the cops confronted him, he admitted he'd stolen the shopping cart from a Walmart about a half mile away.
Why? He was drunk, and he was afraid he'd get a DUI if he drove his own car, so he figured it would be a better idea to steal the cart and drive that.
Well, it wasn't. He was charged with unauthorized use of a moveable. That crime is a felony and has a maximum sentence of up to a $5,000 fine and two years in prison.
A first offense of driving while intoxicated is a misdemeanor and has a maximum sentence of up to a $1,000 fine and six months in prison.
So tell us, was this Florida or Not Florida???
