Florida Man attempts to outrun police car in golf cart
A man was arrested in Florida over the weekend after unsuccessfully attempting to flee from chasing law enforcement officers in a stolen golf cart, police say.
The suspect, who has not been named, was “immediately captured by deputies” after stealing the slow-moving cart from golfers who were playing at Hammock Creek Golf Course in Palm City, the sheriff’s office said in a press release that was also posted to social media.
The person was one of three or four individuals who fled on foot after allegedly bailing from a car which had been stolen from a Palm City gas station. The suspects led officers on a pursuit before crashing the vehicle close to Leighton Farms Road, police said Saturday.
The Martin County Sheriff’s Office said it is believed that the suspects stole a number of vehicles at the Cracker Barrel Old Country Store in Stuart before stealing the vehicle.
