A 73-year-old La Quinta man was arrested Monday for allegedly crashing a golf cart into a tree at the PGA West country club while intoxicated.
Riverside County sheriff's deputies went to the main gate of the golf club on PGA Boulevard in La Quinta shortly before 2:30 a.m., where a woman told security staff she had passed out on the golf course. She said she'd been with a man, later identified as Gary Osborn, who was found passed out on the grass in front of a home in the 55-200 block of Big Spring, sheriff's Sgt. Jessica Vanderhoof said.
"A golf cart was located next to Osborn, which had collided with a tree. There was also fresh collision damage to the cart barn garage door at the residence," Vanderhoof said.
She said neither Osborn nor the woman, who were uninjured, lived at the home where the crash occurred.
Osborn was taken to a hospital before he was taken to jail in Indio. He was booked on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and was being held in lieu of $2,500 bail, according to jail records.
