Handicap Scooter Bumper Car Competition At Walmart Ends In 2:30 AM Arrest Of Drunken Louisiana Guy
The Smoking Gun ^ | December 19, 2011

Posted on 12/22/2011 9:43:33 AM PST by Gamecock

An early morning game of drunken bumper cars--using Walmart handicap scooters--was broken up Saturday morning by Louisiana cops who arrested a 22-year-old man who copped to driving to the store while intoxicated.

Officers with the West Monroe Police Department arrived at the Walmart around 2:30 AM in response to a call about a disturbance. Store management told cops that a group of intoxicated suspects were “playing ‘bumper cars’ with the handicap scooters in the store,” according to a probable cause affidavit.

A police sergeant contacted Christopher Butler, who appeared “very intoxicated.” Butler, pictured at right, admitted driving his 2004 Ford truck to the retailer after consuming “five to six beers.” A subsequent Breathalyzer recorded Butler’s blood alcohol content as .133 (the legal limit is .08).

Butler’s fellow bumper car enthusiasts apparently escaped arrest.

I don't want to live in a country where Drunken Handicap Scooter Bumper Car Competition is against the law.

It’s one percent of the drunken handicap scooter riders who give the other 99% a bad name.

The West Monroe store could boast the title of ‘wierd on parade’ on any given day. I don’t like to shop there.

I hope Butler gets some jail time for this. Don't he know those scooters are for the morbidly obese to use as they go Wal-Marting?

Those pictures also remind me of my last trip to Disneyland, for some reason.

Agreed. If Drunken Handicap Scooter Bumper Car Competitions are wrong, I don’t wanna be right!

Hey, if “fat and lazy” is considered enough of a handicap to use those carts, (and it appears that it is), then “drunk and stupid” should qualify as well.

What about tall, slender, white, Christian, and middle-aged?

That certainly is a handicap in the workplace these days.

I’d want my cart to have a 110 C.I.D. v-twin motor with fishtail mufflers, though.

I’ll take mine with a 427 cammer and dual quads.

Oh, Chris. This is not the time to be volunteering this type of information.

It's nice to know that things are normal in West Monroe.

I was in Wal-Mart last week and I thought I would go crazy! The cars being used kept beeping all over the store, I guess as a kind of warning system like big rigs use when backing up. Why is it I never see a skinny person using the devices?
