Authorities say a man drove a golf cart the wrong way on a suburban Phoenix highway and wouldn't stop for police until he was boxed in by an officer on a motorcycle.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety said in a statement on Thursday that the 83-year-old golf cart driver was confused after he was stopped at about 05:30 and told troopers he thought he was leaving a meeting.

No one was hurt. Troopers took the man home and released him to the custody of his wife.

The statement says the man was stopped by authorities for a similar situation in July.

KNXV-TV reported that the man had been driving a golf cart on another suburban Phoenix highway.
