TSAWWASSEN (NEWS 1130) — A suspected drunk driver was behind the wheel of a golf cart, wearing a bathrobe and slippers when the Delta Police pulled him over early Tuesday morning.

It happened around 3:30 a.m., according to Cris Leykauf, public affairs manager with the Delta PD.

Leykauf says an officer spotted the golf cart going down 52nd Street near 12th Avenue in Tsawwassen, and pulled the driver over, only to find the man in a bathrobe and slippers.

She says the officer could smell liquor as he approached the cart.

“The driver then blew into the approved screening device, and it registered a fail,” says Leykauf. “He was then given an immediate roadside prohibition for 90 days, and the golf cart was towed.”

The cart has since been impounded.

Leykauf says while there may be less traffic on the roads during this pandemic, officers are still out looking for people behaving badly.

“Please remember, all the normal rules of the road apply, and they are being enforced,” she says.
