CANONSBURG, Pa. (AP) - Police say they've pulled over a groom and his best man as they drove in a stolen golf cart from a western Pennsylvania country club wedding reception to a hotel.

Peters Township police Chief Harry Fruecht (frekt) tells the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review newspaper ( that Rolling Hills Country Club opted not to press charges for the pre-honeymoon hijinks on Saturday.

The men were pulled over when an officer saw them driving a cart without headlights in the curb lane of a busy road just before midnight.

The police chief says the men wanted to arrive at the hotel in the golf cart to surprise the other wedding guests, who took a shuttle.

Instead, both men will have memories of being cited for disorderly conduct. The groom also got a ticket for public drunkenness.
