Grand Theft Blotto

Post by Turkeytop » Tue Aug 20, 2019 10:37 pm

Drunk Florida man drives Walmart courtesy scooter out of the store, then another mile, cops claim

John Davis is accused of stealing a courtesy scooter from a St. Petersburg, Fla., Wal-mart shortly before 11 p.m. Friday, then riding it out of the store and driving for another mile before stopping at a gas station as the battery started to run out of juice, according to Pinellas County police.

Making matters worse, police say the 58-year-old motorist was intoxicated when he drove the $1,500 scooter to a WaWa gas station, where he told cops he’d planned to charge the battery.

“The defendant deprived the Wal-Mart store of the right of their property after he rode their electric cart off of property and continued riding it approximately one mile east of the Wal-mart,” says the affidavit charging Davis with grand theft.

At least he wasn't charged with battery.

Correct! Remember their motto: The lowest, always!

Yep! Found that out when my foot was in a cast and the dang scooter pooped out in the dairy aisle.

Hated using the thing in the first place, but the wife and I were tag-team shopping and it's kinda tough to carry milk on crutches. :razz

They need secure carts with Tesla, even owners can't break in.

The could use self-driving Amigos. The scooter would automatically transport you to the aisle with items it thinks you want to buy. :razz
