Imagine: You're in the middle of a nice, relaxing -- hopefully enjoyable -- round of golf when all of the sudden, a stolen pick-up truck comes rip-roaring across the fairway and finally comes to rest in the middle of a pond.
Well, that could have been you if you were playing the ninth hole at Tahquitz Creek Golf Course in Palm Springs, Calif., around 9 a.m. on Tuesday.
According to a report from News Channel 3 (www.kesq.com), the two suspects in the stolen vehicle -- a man and a woman -- led police on a chase that ended in the Tahquitz Creek Golf Course pond.
The California Highway Patrol detained the two suspects and the truck was towed out of the lake.
Here's the report:
Believe it or not, that wasn't the only chase that involved a golf course on Tuesday. Over at Eagle Glen in Corona, Calif., a minivan drove all over the course. On GolfDigest.com, Geoff Shackelford reports that the driver, suspected of attempted fraud at a nearby Home Depot, drove off the course eventually and was shot and killed by L.A. County Sheriffs deputies.
Here's the video of that report from CBS Los Angeles:
Sad ending to the second story for sure.
