26-year-old Tony Tarasiuk stole the golf cart from Sydney Marovitz golf course around 5 p.m. on June 25 and then raced it to the skate park for a little fun, prosecutors say.


And—if you can believe this—the guy was carrying two tabs of LSD, too, according to charges.

A golf course employee saw Tarasiuk take the cart and directed responding officers to the skateboard course at Wilson moments later.


Cops arrested Tarasiuk and gave the E-Z-GO cart back to the golf worker for safe keeping.

Tarasiuk is charged with theft of over $500 and possession of a controlled substance.
