Florida Fogey In Golf Cart Rage Incident
Meet Edmund Gaston. The 79-year-old Floridian is facing a felony rap for allegedly using his golf cart to destroy his girlfriend's carport. According to a Lady Lake Police Department arrest affidavit (a copy of which you'll find here), Gaston backed his "Club Car" cart into a support pole before driving forward and knocking down an entire wall of the structure. The July 16 incident caused about $2000 in damage to the home of Gaston's female friend. When cops pulled over his golf cart, they found two bottles of vodka, one of which was open. Gaston, who was busted in May for battering the same woman, was charged with criminal mischief and leaving the scene of a crash.
