Wedding crasher: Best man dislikes bride, crashes golf cart

NEWPORT, Vt. (AP) — Police say a best man who disliked the bride disappeared after a Vermont wedding, getting drunk, stealing a golf cart, crashing it, and later showing up covered in blood.

The Caledonian Record reports 29-year-old Travis Bass, of Boston, pleaded guilty to unlawful mischief stemming from the Sept. 11 incident. He’s already paid over $5,000 to the Jay Peak resort for damage to the six-seat golf cart.

Police said Bass was driving the cart when it crashed on the 11th tee of the golf course.

A police affidavit said Bass was the best man at the wedding and that he was anxious about it, “not liking the bride.” He took off with the golf cart. Three hours later, he showed up covered in blood and with a broken hand.
