A man recently released from jail was re-arrested after taking a Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office golf cart, investigators said.
Christopher David Whittle, 35, was released from jail Feb. 14, KOB reported.
He said he was cold and asked a maintenance worker for a ride in a golf cart. When the worker left, Whittle took off in the golf cart, driving it to a tire shop about 30 minutes north of the jail, KOB reported.
Whittle told police he was going to get the golf cart fixed and return it.
He was arrested and charged with grand theft.
