An Indiana man was arrested on Sunday morning and faces multiple alcohol-related charges after his vehicle became stuck on a golf cart bridge on Shady Hollow Golf Course in the Cub Run community.
According course manager J.C. Ramsey, a man came to his home near the golf course around 6:30AM on Sunday, November 13th asking for his assistance because his car was stuck on a bridge.
"I asked him why did he have a golf cart stuck on a bridge at this hour and why was he even on the golf course, and he told me that it wasn't a golf cart, he drove his car over it," Ramsey told the Edmonson Voice.
Ramsey said it was obvious that the man was intoxicated.
"He said he needed me to get him some help and I told him I'd definitely get him some help on the way...somebody that would lock him up, and that's when I called the sheriff."
Sheriff Doyle said a KSP trooper was close to the area and responded while Doyle assisted.
According to the arrest citation, Craig Cox, (52) of Whiteland, IN, drove his 2018 Cadillac CT6 over several areas of the golf course, including hole number 15, a par 3 with a golf cart bridge, located on top of a hill just above the green. He also allegedly drove over the green on hole number 16 and across the practice green near the clubhouse.
The citation also stated that Cox told KSP that someone named Billy was actually the one driving the car and he left, but Cox didn't know Billy's last name and law enforcement didn't buy it.
Cox allegedly attempted to drive his car across the small wooden bridge when he veered off the right side and became stuck with his rear wheels off the ground.
He was arrested and charged with:
The citation stated that Cox's breath test showed a .134. Cox was lodged in the Hart County Jail.
Ramsey said that thankfully the damage was no worse than what it was, even though the course will have to repair it.
"It takes all kinds, I reckon," Ramsey said.
