A butcher, accused of doing doughnuts on a golf course, was arrested after the car he was driving was found partially submerged in a lake.

Neil B. Lasalle Gonzalez, 21, of the 1600 block of Red Cedar Drive, Fort Myers, was charged Monday with criminal mischief between $200 and $1,000. He remained Tuesday in Lee County Jail pending posting of a $2,500 bond.

According to Lee County Sheriff's Office reports:

On Monday, deputies were called to a Chevrolet partially submerged in a lake at Gateway Country Club near Callaway Greens and Championship Drives. Security said the car's driver was a visiting at a residence in the 10000 block of Callaway Greens Drive. Lasalle told deputies his car was stolen during the overnight hours, then said he a friend who was out of state loaned him the car. He said he wanted to file a stolen vehicle report.

Lasalle also said he, his girlfriend Andrea Sachs, 18, and another man whose name was not released had gone to get gasoline and then to convenience store.

Sachs gave the same story, but added on the way back to her house Gonzalez began driving on the golf course and doing doughnuts. She got scared and "told him to stop because he was being stupid and careless.” He took her home and the two men stayed outside.
