Brooksville Police say they've arrested a man who was driving drunk -- inside a Walmart.

Timothy Carr of Brooksville is facing charges of disorderly intoxication and felony retail theft. Police say Sunday night, just before 9 o'clock, they found Carr inside the Walmart at 7305 Broad Street. Investigators say he was drunk, and driving around the store on a motorized shopping cart.
