Talk about stupidity.

Around 1 a.m. Monday, Boston police officers in the South End were on patrol when they saw a man driving a golf cart down Beacon Street.

The police turned on their lights and sirens and pulled the cart, which was driving in the right traffic lane, over.

The officers asked the man why he was driving a golf cart on public roadway, and he said he was doing work for a construction company.

“Not convinced, the officers posed the question a second time,” the Police Department said in a statement. “To which, the suspect stated, ‘I’m out doing a survey. What the (expletive) is it to you?'”

The cops asked the man how he came to possess a golf card, and he said that he found the cart, and several others, outside Boston City Hall.

Security at City Hall told police that the golf carts were in City Hall Plaza for a bicycle festival that occurred on Sunday.

Thomas Wright, 45, of Brookline, was arrested and charged with larceny over $250, for allegedly stealing the golf cart.
