Drunk Driving Woman Blames GPS For Her Whereabouts
If you have a GPS then you know it can sometimes be a nuisance and take you where you don't want to go. I, too have been a victim of this but the positives highly outweigh the negatives of the pocket-sized digital map. One woman took this excuse to the extreme when she claimed her GPS guided her right onto the sand trap of a Massachusetts golf course. The real reason she ended up there: she was driving drunk with a bottle of vodka as her passenger.
47-year-old Patricia Maione was drunk driving when she drove her car onto the Whitinsville Golf Club sand trap and got stuck. When police questioned her she claimed her GPS told her to turn left which led her through a corn field and onto the course.
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.
