A car thief in Wisconsin got THE RUNS this week . . . in more ways than one.


Starting With A Police Chase

The drama started when officers spotted a stolen Dodge Durango being driven recklessly on the 5400 block of Port Washington Road, around 11:40 a.m. The car had been reported stolen from Plymouth, Minnesota.

When the police attempted to deploy stop sticks to halt the vehicle, the driver veered into oncoming traffic, causing a collision with two other vehicles. The suspects then abandoned the stolen vehicle and made a run for it with police hot on their trail.

The ensuing chase across a local golf course was captured on video by some surprised golfers, culminating in a suspect being found hiding in a porta potty on the golf course.

Golfers Come To The Rescue

Golfer Adam Westermayer played a pivotal role in the suspect's apprehension, as he made the decision to tip the porta potty over while the suspect was inside.

"When we realized they were being chased and that kid was in the porta potty, we tried to tell the police officer," golfer Adam Westermayer shared. "He went off to chase the other one and I just made a rash decision to go push the porta potty down."



Taken Into Custody

The bizarre sequence of events led to two people being taken into custody, while the drivers of the other vehicles involved in the initial collision were taken to local hospitals for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

Despite the serious circumstances, no one was gravely injured, though it can be assumed that the suspects were left in a sticky situation.
