#EPIC FAIL FILES: Man charged with OWI after being caught on stolen Wal Mart scooter

HOUMA, La. — A 24-year-old man is accused of driving a stolen shopping scooter while drunk along an east-Houma highway, police say.

Thomas J. Phillip’s breath tested at more than double the amount considered legal proof of intoxication under Louisiana law when he was pulled over Sunday, according to Houma Police.

Police said they received a call from someone at the store and found Phillip driving the scooter on South Van Avenue and towing a friend behind him in a wheelchair. Phillip told officers he decided to take the scooter from the Grand Caillou Road Wal-Mart and go for a joyride.

Phillip, 325 Merrill Drive, was booked with operating a vehicle while intoxicated and with theft, police said. The wheelchair occupant was not cited. Phillip was in the Terrebonne Parish jail today in lieu of a $10,000 bond.
