In Glendale, a dramatic police chase ensued on Wednesday, culminating in an unusual arrest. Officers from the Glendale Police Department engaged in a pursuit that started on Port Washington Road just before noon, following an attempt to stop a stolen white Dodge Durango. Newly released body camera and dash camera footage captured the intensity of the chase.
As police attempted to deploy stop sticks, the driver of the Durango swerved, colliding with two other vehicles, then veered onto I-43 against oncoming traffic. The Durango eventually crashed into the highway barrier, leading its four occupants to flee on foot. Officers quickly detained one suspect, while the remaining three initiated a chase across the highway.
The pursuit extended into Lincoln Park Golf Course, with police vehicles seen speeding across the golf course’s green. In a unique turn of events, officers used golf carts to navigate the course and close in on the suspects.
The chase reached a bizarre climax when one suspect, attempting to evade capture, hid inside an orange porta potty. A quick-thinking golfer observed the suspect’s actions and tipped the porta potty over, allowing officers to locate and apprehend the suspect.
The captured individuals were taken back to the station, marking the end of a high-speed chase that spanned across multiple locations. The Glendale Police Department’s handling of the situation, particularly the unusual conclusion involving the porta potty, highlights the unpredictable nature of law enforcement pursuits. The suspects are now facing charges related to the stolen vehicle and the chase.
