Fore!

A man prosecutors accuse of being a meth dealer led Minnesota police on a wild chase this week, and let’s just say it gave a new meaning to driving range.

It looks an awful lot like an upscale Dukes of Hazard.

We can joke, because nobody was hurt, but witnesses say there were about 100-150 duffers on the course when the pickup took off through the front and back nine at around 40-50 miles per hour.

The chase ended at a North Dakota mall, where felony charges of fleeing police and destruction of property (which in this case included failing to replace his divots) were added against the suspect.

Meanwhile, the police themselves are reviewing their decision to continue the chase through the course. The department’s policy is to stop pursuit when there are unnecessary “hazards to uninvolved bystanders or motorists.”

And these were certainly hazards the golfers did not anticipate.
