Police in Florida say they arrested a man for driving drunk -- inside a Walmart.

Timothy Carr, 48, was spotted at about 9 p.m. Sunday drunk and driving a motorized shopping cart around a Walmart in Brooksville, Tampa TV station WFLA reported.

He was drinking an alcoholic beverage he had taken off a shelf and knocking items off shelves with the cart, according to the Tampa Tribune.

Police said Carr told them he didn't have the money to pay for the alcohol and was arrested on charges of disorderly intoxication and retail theft.

Court records show he's been convicted of retail theft twice in the past, Tampa TV station WTSP reported.
