LEHIGH ACRES, Fla. - A Lehigh Acres man stole a golf cart from a church, but didn't get far.

Deputies said Patrick Dawson took a golf cart from Christ United Methodist church and drove it swerving down Archdale Street.

Witnesses spotted the man and initially thought he was a volunteer.

After talking with church workers, the witness realized Dawson was no volunteer, but a thief.

Witnesses flagged down a deputy driving by and Dawson was arrested.
