WAYNESBORO, Va. (WHSV) -- A Stuarts Draft man is in jail after police say a shortcut he was trying to take resulted in him traveling through the golf course at the Waynesboro Country Club.

David Michael Liptrap, 22, is facing a DUI charge and misdemeanor destruction of property. At about 6 a.m., officers responded to an area of the golf course near the first hole due to a 1998 Ford Ranger got stuck on a bridge meant for golf carts.

Liptrap told the officers that he got lost while driving in a nearby residential area. Not knowing where to go, Liptrap decided to drive down a path that was meant for golf carts thinking it to be a short cut to Meadowbrook Avenue, but when the path ended, he continued through the golf course until he got to the bridge which is close to Meadowbrook Avenue, according to police.

Police say he misjudged the width of the bridge and got his vehicle stuck and was unable to dislodge it.

Damage to the golf course is estimated at between $500 and $1,000. He is being held at Middle River Regional Jail until police say he is sober enough for a bond hearing. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
