    Stewart Cink chips out of a sand trap on the fourth fairway during the first round of the US Open championship at Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego. A woman drove her car into a sand trap in Massachusetts.

    This was no ordinary drive into a sand trap.

    A woman was arrested in Massachusetts after driving her car into a sand trap on a golf course while drunk, police said.

    Patricia Maione was held on $10,000 bail after pleading not guilty Tuesday to charges including driving with a suspended license and fourth offense drunken driving.

    Authorities say the 47-year-old woman's car got stuck at the Whitinsville Golf Club in Northbridge on Monday. She told police her GPS told her to turn left, which she said led her through a corn field and onto the golf course.

    The Telegram & Gazette reported that police said they found a cup filled with alcohol in her car.

    There were golfers on the course at the time, but no one was hurt.
