37-year-old James Straub does not have the best fashion sense. He doesn’t make the wisest decisions while driving either. Apparantly after attending an outing at Terry Hills Golf Course he decided to take a golf cart for a spin. Check out the full story of the grand theft auto clown after the jump.
The fashion police couldn’t arrest him, but a man mistaken for a clown still got in trouble with the law.
A Massachusetts man whose colorful golf attire was briefly mistaken for a clown outfit has been charged in New York with driving a golf cart while drunk.
The Genesee County sheriff says they got a report that someone dressed as a clown was operating a stolen golf cart in the western New York town of Batavia on Sunday night. Deputies found 37-year-old James Straub, of Stoneham, Mass., driving along a road.
He wasn’t dressed as a clown — just wearing some colorful clothing after an outing at Terry Hills Golf Course. But deputies say he was intoxicated.
Straub pleaded not guilty in town court to a misdemeanor count of driving while intoxicated and a lesser charge of refusing to take a breath test. He didn’t have a lawyer at his initial appearance.
