Call it a new kind of drinking and driving.

Police in Brooksville, Florida arrested a man at Wal-Mart on Sunday night for what is being called a shopping cart DUI.

Timothy Carr allegedly grabbed an alcoholic beverage off of the shelf while riding around the store in a motorized shopping cart. No word on whether he was on his way to a Super Bowl party.

The suspect was also allegedly seen breaking items in the store by knocking them over with his cart.

According to police, when they attempted to make contact with Carr he informed them he did not have any money to pay for the alcoholic beverage he was drinking.

Officers arrested the suspect, charging him with disorderly intoxication and retail theft. Because there were two other convictions of retail theft on Carr's record, the offense became a felony. He is currently being held at the Hernando County Jail on $2,150.00 bond.

Apparently Carr is not alone in pushing the limits of drinking and driving. According to the website IBTimes.com, a Minnesota man pleaded guilty to driving a Zamboni drunk in May. An Ohio man was arrested in 2009 for driving a motorized bar stool when drunk. The vehicle was reportedly powered by a deconstructed lawn mower.

The website sloshspot.com also describes the arrest of lmer Stoltzfoos Fisher, a Wisconsin man charged with a DUI after passing out drunk at the helm of a horse drawn carriage.
