Woman drives car onto golf course, into sand trap

UXBRIDGE, Mass. — A woman told police she drove her car into a sand trap on a Massachusetts golf course because her GPS sent her the wrong way.

Police say she was drunk.

Patricia Maione was held on $10,000 bail after pleading not guilty Tuesday to charges including driving with a suspended license and fourth offense drunken driving.

Authorities say the 47-year-old woman’s car got stuck at the Whitinsville Golf Club in Northbridge on Monday. She told police her GPS told her to turn left, which she said led her through a corn field and onto the golf course.

The Telegram &Gazette reports that police say they found a cup filled with alcohol in her car.

There were golfers on the course at the time, but no one was hurt.
