Illegal Scootin’

4651

An Indianapolis man might have thought he was just minding his own business today when he was cruising along Ind. 135 in Johnson County.

The only problem — well, there were several — was that he was driving a small motorized shopping scooter, police said, that could barely be seen by other motorists.

He was northbound in the southbound lanes.

At 3:49 a.m.

And the scooter, police said, did not belong to him but rather was the property of an area Walmart store.

Yet another problem: When police stopped the scooter, they noticed its operator – Marcus Earl Degraphenreed, 27 – had glassy eyes and seemed to be disoriented. Degraphenreed failed followup field sobriety tests, a police report states.

When a Johnson County sheriff’s deputy saw an “in-store use only” sign on the scooter normally used by disabled customers, he asked Degraphenreed where he got it. The man replied simply that he found it, a police report states. He did not specify where he found it.

Police arrested the man on preliminary charges of theft and driving under the influence. He was taken to Johnson Memorial Hospital for a blood draw.

The Amigo brand motorized scooter was returned to the Walmart store at County Line Road and Emerson Avenue in Greenwood.

    Wow how far will those things go? Maybe we should be driving wal-mart scooters instead of gas burning cars.

    A fine example of a Darwin Award recipient trying to join the 27 Club (Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain)

    Maybe he lost his license and didn’t realize that DUI includes all vehicles, bicycles too.

    that trip was over 5 miles on a very busy road, I’m surprised he made it that far without getting picked up before that

    With a name like Degraphenreed, I’d be glassy-eyed too. I’m just sorry someone beat me to this idea; I thought of stealing one of those things many times.
