According to an arrest report, a woman with an open bottle of Jack Daniel’s booze in her bag was caught driving a golf cart on Florida’s crowded interstate while heavily intoxicated.

According to NBC, the 58-year-old woman was apprehended on the shoulder of Interstate 95 on Saturday evening. She is now charged with disorderly intoxication in a public area and resisting an officer without violence, both misdemeanors.

A trucker managed to spot the woman cruising in the golf cart in the middle lane of Interstate 95 in Brevard County, the core of Florida’s Space Coast, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report. According to the report, the trucker “advised she observed the driver of the golf cart passing out while driving.”

According to troopers, the trucker used her semi to guide the golf cart to the interstate shoulder.

As the woman attempted to drive away, the trucker snatched the keys to the golf cart. When troopers did arrive, the woman began arguing with them, insisting she will need her bag. According to authorities, troopers discovered an open bottle of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Fire Whiskey within the bag.

According to the Federal Highway Administration, Interstate 95, which runs along the entire East Coast, is Florida’s busiest interstate highway.
