Hint: If You Think Your GPS Is Telling You To Drive Onto A Golf Course, Don’t

Trying to get out of a drunk driving rap? Just blame it on the GPS! Apparently one woman thought that excuse of blindly following her car’s navigation aid would hold up when cops found her insider her car, which she’d crashed in a golf course sand trap.

The woman was arrested on drunk driving charges on Monday afternoon. She reportedly told police “that her GPS had told her to turn left. She stated that this left brought her into a ‘cornfield’ and once she was in the ‘cornfield’ she kept driving, trying to get out of (the) ‘cornfield.'”

Once she was on the golf course, she must’ve really been in a hurry to get out of there, as cops say she hit speeds of 45 mph while cruising around on the course. People were swinging away on the course at the time but no one was injured, according to CBS Boston.

She reportedly failed a field sobriety test and admitted to drinking a half liter of vodka that morning. So really, is it fair to blame the GPS?
