In June 2014, we wrote a post on a high-speed police chase that went through a North Dakota golf course. On Wednesday, police footage of the incident was finally made public and as you might imagine, it's pretty thrilling/scary/EPIC.
This isn't just any old footage. It's the dashcam video from one of the police cars chasing Michael Feist, a man who was wanted on several drug arrest warrants at the time. Take a look (the golf course portion begins at the 2:30 mark):
At one point, you can hear someone on the police radio ask, "Are you on the golf course?" Moments later, the officers are told to stop pursuing because it's too dangerous. Probably a good call when you see several golfers just trying to enjoy a peaceful round of golf at Village Green Golf Course having to scramble to get out of the way.
According to KFGO.com, four of the officers involved were reprimanded for breaking department policy. Feist was eventually caught at a nearby mall and sentenced to 11 years in a federal prison.
Fortunately, no one was hurt in the chase. And all parties at least had the decency to keep their cars off the greens.
