According to WDAY, 33-year-old Kendall Feist sped off in his pickup truck after police attempted to serve him with outstanding drug warrants. 

Officers finally managed to stop Feist at a shopping mall in nearby Fargo, North Dakota — but not before he and several police cars tore through the Village Green Golf Course, sending golfers running for their lives.

One caught it all on camera.

"My eyes got about the size of golf balls. I turned around, and he jumped the ditch and got on the course. I guess chaos just broke loose after that." (Via HLN)

WDAY reports large portions of the course were damaged during the high-speed chase. Thankfully, no one was hurt. 

But police say they are now investigating whether officers followed the correct protocol when they followed the suspect onto the course.

"The officers making these decisions to be in a pursuit, it's very dynamic. And the information that they receive may not be consistent to all of them. When they receive the information's important.​" (Via KVRR)

As for Feist, he was arrested and booked for his outstanding felony warrants. He now also faces felony charges for fleeing from police and criminal damage to property.
