GLENDALE, Wisconsin (WTMJ) — A police chase ended in a porta potty Wednesday after Glendale police attempted to pull over a driver in a stolen car. Little did officers know, they would end up in a smelly situation shortly after the pursuit.
It began with a crash on I-43.
According to the Glendale Police Department, officers located a Dodge Durango, which was stolen out of Plymouth, Minnesota, on the 5400 block of Port Washinton Road around 11:40 a.m.
Officers saw the driver driving recklessly and an officer attempted to deploy stop sticks. The driver drove into oncoming traffic and caused a crash with two other vehicles on the 5000 block of Port Washington Road.
The four people inside the stolen vehicle fled from the vehicle and ran from police, who were not far behind.
Golfers at a nearby golf course then saw police cars speeding across the green.
A video taken from golfers at Lincoln Park, which is on the west side of the highway, shows police officers surrounding a porta potty. It’s where they found one suspect trapped after a golfer stepped in and took matters into his own hands.
“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.”
Several golfers saw this all unfold on the green.
Two people were taken into custody.
