Drunk Driver Gets Stuck In Golf Course Sand Trap: Police

Woman says her GPS sent her the wrong way

This was no ordinary drive into a sand trap.

A woman was arrested in Massachusetts after driving her car into a sand trap on a golf course while drunk, police said.

Patricia Maione was held on $10,000 bail after pleading not guilty Tuesday to charges including driving with a suspended license and fourth offense drunken driving.

Authorities say the 47-year-old woman's car got stuck at the Whitinsville Golf Club in Northbridge on Monday. She told police her GPS told her to turn left, which she said led her through a corn field and onto the golf course.

The Telegram & Gazette reported that police said they found a cup filled with alcohol in her car.

There were golfers on the course at the time, but no one was hurt.
