Officials say one of the four bragged about it at school. Two of them admitted their roles this week with guilty pleas to malicious destruction of property charges. In a deal with prosecutors, they’ll pay restitution and can eventually clear their records.
The teens told investigators they used screwdrivers to start the golf carts, which were parked outside next to the clubhouse.MORE NEWS: Metro Detroit Woman Files Lawsuit Against Walmart, Says Discriminated Against By Managers
