Mom arrested after allowing son to drive golf cart on Bald Head Island
BALD HEAD ISLAND, NC (WWAY) — A mom says she was arrested after she allowed her son to drive a golf cart while vacationing on Bald Head Island.
The Charlotte Observer reports, on the second day of her dream vacation on exclusive Bald Head Island, Julie Mall went with her family to the beach to catch the sunset.
Her 11-year-old son asked to drive the golf cart back to their $1,000-a-day rented cottage.
In the next four hours, Mall says she was pinned to the ground by police, repeatedly accused of being drunk, frogmarched barefoot aboard a ferry in handcuffs, jailed in leg irons and charged with child abuse.
