NEW YORK (CNN) – People hitting the links at a golf course in Minnesota got a huge surprise when a fugitive pickup truck comes barreling down the fairway with several cop cars in hot pursuit.
Cody Fuller was golfing in Moorhead and was able to capture the chase on camera. 33-year-old Kendall Feist of Bismarck led police all over the area, including right through greens and fairways at Village Green.
“My eyes got about the size of golf balls,” Cody Fuller said. Hearing about a high speed chase is one thing, but seeing it is really something else. “I looked at my wife and I told her, I was like that’s my video, I took that,” Fuller continued.
Fuller was definitely in the right place, at the right time. “All the lights and sirens were going,” said Fuller. He was golfing at Village Green Tuesday night, when he found himself smack dab in the middle of a car chase.
“Turned around and he jumped the ditch and got on the course and I guess chaos just broke loose after that,” Fuller continued. The driver plowed through fairways and greens with police trailing behind, a helicopter overhead, and golfers gawking in disbelief.
“Yeah it was pretty crazy, especially for the golfers out here to see that coming down,” Schroeder said.
“There were people running. I could see in the distance people scattering and running all over the place,” Fuller. Now golfers are back out and grounds crews are cleaning up with he ruined.
“Looks like we’re just coming up on some tracks now. Looks like if he would’ve went a little faster, he would’ve got some water,” said Michael Beyer.
“I was surprised at how not damaged it was. I was expecting worse,” said Schroeder.
While Cody carries the intense images he captured from the night before. “I’m still kind of in shock about it. Living around here you don’t see something like that every day,” Fuller said.
“Should’ve been on the driving range huh,” said Beyer. Grounds crew members say aside from planting some grass seed cleanup is pretty much completed.
They’re thankful the damage wasn’t more extensive and more importantly, everyone playing here last night was safe.
