Fan steals Rose Bowl cart and gets a DUI

Monday January 5th, 2015

It's understandable if you head to the Rose Bowl, one of the most anticipated college football games of the year, and have a good time. It's also understandable that you probably don't feel like walking back to your car following the festivities. It might not be the best idea, however, to steal a cart from the most hallowed stadium in college football to help your cause. 

This is what one man apparently decided to do this past Thursday after the College Football Playoff contest between the Oregon Ducks and Florida State Seminoles, Joseph Serna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Thursday evening at around 10 p.m. PST, police received a 911 call from a witness stating that someone was joy-riding in a nine-passenger golf cart on the 210 Freeway. When he was caught, it was revealed that he was just trying to make the trek to his car a little easier. 

“He took the cart and was trying to get to his car on the other side of Pasadena,” said Sgt. Mike Munoz. “It’s definitely chalked up as one of the new experiences for a lot of people here.”

Andrew Aldridge, the 19-year-old driver of the Rose Bowl cart, was arrested on suspicion of DUI.
