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.┬áNote to any felons, if you’re running away from the cops, steer clear of golf courses.

See Chamblee, this is why Rory works out.
