A woman pulled over by Crossville officers while riding an electric shopping cart stolen from Walmart claimed she was just on her way to get a cup of coffee, investigators say.

Police responded around 5 a.m. Friday to a report of a woman driving an electric scooter in the slow lane on Highway 127.

When officers were able to get her to stop, they said the driver, identified as Sally Selby, claimed she took the cart from Walmart and was driving it to Waffle House to get a cup of coffee.

Police watched surveillance footage from Walmart and said Selby was observed entering the store at 4:15 a.m. and driving the electric scooter as she shopped.

Around 4:40 a.m., officers advised she exited the business, drove around the Walmart parking lot and then rode the shopping cart onto Highway 127.

Crossville police have not said what charge or charges Selby will face.
