A soldier that served as a sentinel at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery has been seriously injured after getting run over by, of all things, a golf cart.
According to the Pensacola News Journal, a U.S Army specialist by the name of Dan Glover suffered multiple fractures in his leg when a group reportedly ran him over with their golf cart at Osceola Golf Course in Florida on August the 12th.
Pensacola News Journal also stated that a fight broke out between Glover’s playing partner and the group involving music.
This is where it starts to get a bit ridiculous. Reportedly, the person that hit Glover said that she was making her way over to the scene to try to temper the situation before it boiled over. However, instead of calming the situation down, she kind of ran Dan Glover over with her golf cart instead.
The offender stated that she tried to hit the brakes on the golf cart but the vehicle carried on going until hit finally collided with the U.S Army specialist after she’d already applied the brakes. The police report remarked, however, there were no marks at the scene that would suggest an attempt to stop. The report also said that the group had signs of intoxication at the time of the incident.
Driving a golf cart whilst drunk? Hmmm…why don’t we give Johnny Knoxville a call? Because that sounds like it would right in his ballpark.
There follows a spate of incidents with the same storyline. A man was recently stabbed for not letting a person play through, and two Coloradans had a literal fist fight over something similar. What the hell is going on?
Glover told the police that the group approached while yelling and throwing out racial slurs and started the fight. He was reportedly pinned beneath the cart before eventually managing to push the cart off of him. Jesus.
The person that hit Glover has been charged with aggravated assault, and was released on a $10,000 bond.
So children, what is the moral of the story? That’s right, if you’re going to drive a golf cart whilst boozed up, try not to run anyone over.
