A North Carolina prosecutor is using the driving while impaired conviction of a golf cart driver to warn people they can be busted for DWI on any vehicle.
The StarNews of Wilmington reports that Brunswick County District Attorney Rex Gore issued a news release saying 24-year-old William McNabb, of Gray, Tenn., was found guilty Friday of DWI and received a suspended sentence.
Authorities say McNabb had a blood-alcohol level of 0.20 percent when he was pulled over while driving the golf cart on Bald Head Island in August 2008.
Gore says he wanted to remind people during the Independence Day holiday weekend that they can be arrested for drinking while driving boats, animals, bicycles and even lawn movers.
