Man On Golf Cart Arrested For Drunk Driving

Drinking and golf might mix. But drinking and driving don't, even if you're driving a golf cart.

Florida State Troopers were on the scene of a fatal accident on County Road 177 Tuesday afternoon when Jerry Ogburn drove up on a golf cart just to look at the crash." That's not against the law. But driving under the influence is.

Ogburn was arrested for DUI and booked into the Holmes County Jail. Troopers say it's not his first DUI arrest.

Because of Ogburn's drunk driving history, his golf cart was supposed to have an ignition interlock device which would prevent him from starting it if he'd been drinking

As far as the crash that drew Ogburn's attention, troopers say 19 year old James Kilgore of Defuniak Springs was trying to exit at Fairway Drive. The right side tires of his Nissan Altima drifted onto the shoulder. Kilgore over corrected and the car spun out of control until it hit a wood fence and several trees. Kilgore was pronounced dead at the scene. His passenger, 19 year old Brandon Joiner of Enterprise, was taken to Bay Medical Center with what troopers called serious injuries.
