The golf cart wasn’t properly licensed to be on the road. O’Connor gave the officer her business card and said, “If you need anything, don’t hesitate to call me.”

In an official statement, the mayor said, “We will hold everyone accountable for their actions, regardless of their position. This behavior is unacceptable, and Police Chief O’Connor will be subject to due process and appropriate discipline.”
