FAIRBANKS — A 63-year-old man attempting to drive a motorized shopping cart into the parking lot of a Fairbanks grocery store was arrested and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol on Wednesday night.
Merrill Keith Moses, of Fairbanks, also was charged with refusal to submit to a chemical breath and shoplifting.
A Fred Meyer West employee called police at 9:45 p.m. to report that an intoxicated Moses was attempting to drive the cart into traffic in the parking lot. The employee was worried that Moses would be hit by a vehicle, police said.
One employee told police that Moses driving drunk on the cart is an ongoing problem in the store and Moses has tried to run store employees over in the past when they have attempted to stop him on the cart.
It did not appear that Moses is disabled or handicapped, police said.

Doesn't matter if it is a wheelchair, a lawn mower or a motorized shopping cart. If anyone attempts to drive it on the road while drinking, they can get a DUI.Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........
Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?
