Golf Cart Incident
On Wednesday, September 9, a resident reported a near-miss incident with a golf cart, which appeared to be driven by an unlicensed operator. The complainant provided a picture of the golf cart in question in order for Security to follow up with the individual. Upon further investigation, it appeared the golf cart decals had been altered. After narrowing down the possibilities of the correct registration number, Security identified the owners and made contact with them regarding the incident. The juvenile who was driving the cart took responsibility for his actions and provided his version of the incident. The golf cart was re-registered, and a citation was issued for unlicensed golf cart operation, which was paid by the juvenile. The juvenile and his parents also met with the Security Director to follow-up on the incident.
