Florida man steals golf cart, leads cops on chase

By Coleman Bentley  

Andrew Thomson Burnett, a 42-year-old Sanford resident turned to crime earlier this week, battering an innocent golf cart driver before "cart" jacking his cart and leading police on a low-speed chase along U.S.-1 North in St. Johns County, FL. Here is your requisite Florida Man mugshot...


The pursuit began when a deputy spotted Burnett piloting the stolen red golf cart, weaving back and forth across the highway near the intersection os U.S.-1 and Palencia Village Drive. Burnett then made an abrupt u-turn into oncoming traffic and crashed the cart into a ditch in an effort to shake his pursuers.

He continued on foot, attempting to"create an escape by using his head to bust through a vinyl fence," according to the St. Johns Sheriff's Office. After failing to wriggle through his improvised head hole, Burnett was eventually, like so many Florida Men and women before him, apprehended.
