Police in Brooksville, Florida say that they arrested Timothy Carr over the weekend for driving drunk inside a local Walmart.
An arrest report obtained by The Smoking Gun on Monday indicated that Carr, 48, had helped himself to an alcoholic beverage while operating one of the store’s motorized shopping carts at around 9 p.m. on Sunday.
“The defendant did enter Walmart and select two packages of Daily Daiquiri and proceed to drink them in the store,” the charging document stated. “The defendant was driving a Walmart owned electric cart. While driving the cart, the defendant knocked several items off the shelves causing damage to the items.”
“The defendant did not have money to pay for the Daily Daiquiri drink that he consumed,” the report added.
Police indicated that Carr was unemployed and a transient. The crime was considered a felony because he had two previous arrests for retail theft.
Carr was being held on $6,000 bond, according to The Smoking Gun.
