LARKSVILLE, Pa. (AP) - Police have arrested a northeastern Pennsylvania man on suspicion of driving under the influence after he was spotted driving a golf cart from bar to bar.

Larksville police say the man told an officer he was using the golf cart to navigate the borough’s streets Monday night because he had been drinking and needed a way to get to a bar.

Police say the man initially refused to stop for the officer and nearly rammed a squad car with the golf cart. He was taken to a hospital for a blood alcohol test.

Police didn’t release the man’s name. They say they’ll file charges once test results come back.

Larksville is about 3 miles west of Wilkes-Barre.
