      A man was arrested for drunk driving and malicious destruction of property after kicking in a glass door and flipping over an electric cart in the Walmart parking lot.

      An investigation by the Grand Traverse County Sheriff's Office reports the incident happened Tuesday around 1:43 a.m.

      The two men had been refused the sale of alcohol and were upset and yelling and cursing at the clerk.

      While leaving the store, the men kicked in a glass door and flipped over an electric cart. The door was repaired while officers were on the scene. The cart was damaged.

      The Sheriff's Department reports the men had been drinking at other local places before driving to Walmart to buy more alcohol.

      A 21-year-old Lake Ann man who drove to the store was arrested for operating while intoxicated with a high blood alcohol content and malicious destruction of property. The other man, a 21-year-old from Mesick, was released.
