    Default Suspect In Golf Cart Eludes Police

    http://www.wftv.com/irresistible/17760786/detail.html

    Man Arrested A Day Later

    A Utah sheriff's office has found that it shouldn't underestimate the golf cart as a getaway car.

    A suspect in a souped-up cart managed to elude officers who pursued him last month through an alfalfa field -- but only for a while. He was arrested the next day at his grandmother's house.

    The driver was identified as Trev Dawson, of Morgan, Utah. Police recognized him because he'd arrested before on minor charges. Dawson pleaded guilty in to evading police, but if he avoids jail with 12 months of good behavior, the charge will be dismissed.

    The incident happened in August when officers saw the golf cart spinning out in a city park in Morgan.

    "I lit them up with a spotlight and everybody fled," Morgan County Sheriff's Sgt. Scott Peay told the Standard-Examiner newspaper. Peay said three people were in the golf cart and two on foot, all fleeing the scene in separate directions.

    The golf cart took off into an alfalfa field and jumped irrigation ditches that the sheriff's cruisers couldn't cross.

    Peay suspected the cart was fitted with a car engine instead of the original electric motor.

    "Normally, golf carts can't jump irrigation ditches," Peay told the newspaper. "It wasn't any faster than us, but in the alfalfa field it was jumping irrigation ditches. We couldn't get through the ditches."

    They later recovered the golf cart at a local drag strip after clocking an 8 second 1/4 mile.

    I need to post some pics of my cart. It's all pimped out rollin' on 205 30/12's wrapped around polished 12 x 6 aluminum wheels along w/ some other polished stuff. I've got plans on dropping the front 1/2" or so to give it a little rake but haven't taken the time to do it yet. There's all sorts of conversion kits too for anything from a 24 horse Honda mill to crazy snow-machine engines. I've read about ppl having carts that run 50-60 MPH & that's just nuts. I'd like to have mine at 25 or so tops.

    Given how much off roading is mentioned, I tend to think the vehicle looks a bit more like this:

    Neat, yet it also tells everyone in the clubhouse (as well as on the cart path) how badly you tend to miss the fairway.

    In that case, it would fit my golf skills perfectly.

    In some of the ever popular golf townships here and across the nation, they are actually status symbols for the idle minded semi rich. Just Google some of the images of these things. There are countless sites selling them, with designs ranging from the truly inspired to the utterly insipid.

    About 10 years ago a few friends and I lived in a house on 3 1/2 acres and we toyed with the idea of buying a few riding mowers and soupin' 'em up... We never did, but the idea sounds really cool...

    One question in relation to the original story, if they knew who the kid was, why did they try chasing him in the first place??? They should've just met him at his grandma's house...

    Indeed, there is a retirement place up here called The Villages where it seems everyone tries to "one up" each other. Oddly enough, it was also widespread news a couple of years ago that STDs were spreading like wildfire through the place. Glad to know I have more than shuffleboard and ping pong to look forward to in my twilight years.

    Oh yea, here in Anthem people go over the top with these things. I've seen them stretched with multiple rows of seats, kits that make them look like hummers, lowered, raised, just about everything. I figure its guys who's wives won't let them have real toys
