As the San Diego Union-Tribune reported, a suspect fleeing from cops was tackled by a man playing golf at one of the courses at Omni La Costa Resort and Spa in Carlsbad on Friday.

The 22-year-old suspect, who was arrested and booked into jail on Friday, had driven away during a traffic stop for an expired registration and crashed into something before bolting from his car and running off.

The golfer had noticed a cop chasing the man and immediately took action. His takedown allowed the officer to catch up and arrest the fleeing suspect. Note to any felons, if you’re running away from the cops, steer clear of golf courses.

See Chamblee, this is why Rory works out.
