GPS Blamed for Woman’s Crash at Golf Course

GPS Blamed for Woman’s Crash at Golf Course

A woman driver alleged to be drunk blames her GPS system for leading her off-track, resulting in a crash at the Whitinsville Golf Club.

Patricia Maione, aged 46, from Uxbridge, Massachusetts, told the police that she followed the directions given to her by the GPS system. Turning into a corn field and trying to get back on the road, she found herself landing in a sand trap on the golf course. Luckily, there were no injuries from the incident except to the greens.

Maione was assumed drunk with her slurred speech, bloodshot eyes, and strong smell of alcohol. A large cup from a fast food restaurant containing an alcoholic beverage was found in the vehicle. Maione also admitted to drinking vodka earlier that day.

Several charges were laid against Maione including negligent driving, driving with an open container of alcohol, driving with a suspended license, and drunk driving. This is the fourth time she has been charged with drunk driving. She is being held on $10,000 bail after the judge revoked her release order on two previous cases that involved disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, and drug charges. She was out on personal recognizance for those cases. Pretrial hearings are already scheduled for Maione’s three cases.
