"An Albert Lea man, Milton Christian Paulsen, 63, pleaded guilty Thursday to operating a golf cart drunk and running over a woman at Beaver Trails Jellystone Park on the Fourth of July. The incident occurred during the holiday evening at the Austin campsite. Paulsen wildly accelerated his cart and crashed into a 61-year-old woman from Island Lake, according to a court file. The golf cart and the woman landed in a pond, and the victim was trapped under the cart. Paulsen said he helped keep her head above water while others removed the cart.
She suffered a broken ankle.
