RUTLEDGE, Tenn. (AP) - The Grainger County Sheriff's Office said three juveniles have been arrested after more than a dozen golf carts were used in an impromptu demolition derby.
Authorities told The Knoxville News Sentinel the arrests came early Friday at a campground in Rutledge after a camper caught three male youths stealing a golf cart.
The sheriff's office said that was a second attempt. On Thursday night, someone found a key in a golf cart and used it to steal 12 other carts at the May Spring Campground, smashing some into each other and some into other objects.
Sheriff Scott Layel said at least two of the youths arrested Friday had also been involved in the first night's vandalism.
