49ers , a recently signed undrafted free agent, said he’s only been in trouble twice in his life.
Once in high school, he was written up for having his shirt untucked. Then in March, he and two teammates were arrested for authorized use of a vehicle.
That vehicle was an athletic department-owned golf cart, which Kristick helped take for a spin, ditch, and then leave in a handicapped parking spot off campus.
It sounds harmless enough, but Kristic and his teammates were originally charged with a felony. On Tuesday, they pled guilty to a much lesser charge, according to the Oregonian. Kristic, a passenger on the ride, was given ten months’ bench probation and ordered to complete 25 hours of community
Golf cart joyrides are rarely worth the payoff. I remember working as a clubhouse attendant/servant at a golf course when I was 15. Two of my co-workers would race each other down a steep hill to the parking area, which surrounded the club’s pool.
You can guess what happened: one golf cart at the bottom of a pool, one pissed off manager, and one kid that needed to find a new summer job.
