Houma, La. - A Houma man was arrested Sunday after police say he stole a motorized scooter and took it for a "joy ride."
A spokesman for the Houma Police Department says officers responded to the call of a male subject driving a motorized scooter on South Van Avenue pulling a wheel chair.
When officers arrived, they located two men, one driving the motorized scooter and the other being pulled in the wheelchair.
Police say the motorized scooter belonged to Wal-Mart on Grand Calliou Rd. Officers learned that Thomas Phillip was inside the business earlier and informed officers he wanted to take it for a "joy ride".
