ALPHARETTA, Ga. – A suspect is facing several charges after police say they drove a stolen vehicle onto the course at Topgolf.
According to the Alpharetta Department of Public Safety, officers were called to the Topgolf on Westside Parkway around 7 a.m. after an employee reported a vehicle had been driven onto the course and was teetering over one of the targets.
Police responded, rescued the driver and arrested them on several charges.
“The vehicle went onto the turn and continued on and almost went into one of the target holes,” said Officer Howard Miller. “Thankfully, one of the wires on the netting between the target got underneath the vehicle and saved the car from taking a 6-foot drop.”
Investigators said the car was reported stolen out of Cobb County.
The driver, whose name hasn’t been released, drove onto the course through an opening for maintenance vehicles, police said.
“It definitely could have been bad for the driver,” Miller said.
