Police: Man arrested on multiple charges after driving golf cart on I-630
LITTLE ROCK (KATV) —
Little Rock police arrested a man after pulling him over for driving a golf cart on Interstate 630.
On August 29, officers saw an E-Z-Go golf cart exiting I-630 on the off-ramp to S. University and made contact with the driver, 22-year-old Corey Hearn.
At first, Hearn told police he was returning the car to the Four Seasons motel.
Officers then got him to pull into a parking lot off the roadway and asked why he took the interstate.
He told police he was coming from Stagecoach Rd. and it was the quickest way to get to the motel. However, he later told authorities the golf cart belonged to a person called "Cadillac" and then said it belonged to his brother.
While authorities were investigating, they got Hearn out of the golf cart, noticing a seven-inch steel bar in his lap and commercial-sized boxes of paper plates, paper towels and trash bags in the back seat of the golf cart.
Police then discovered a small crack pipe with residue on it in Hearn's pocket and also learned he was wanted on a warrant out of North Little Rock for theft of property.
Hearn was taken into custody at the Pulaski County jail for possession of an instrument of a crime, unlawful operation on the interstate and the North Little Rock warrant.
The golf cart was towed and impounded.
