(WDAY/CNN) Police in Minnesota followed a fleeing pickup right onto a golf course.

Authorities say 33-year-old Kendall Feist took off after officers attempted to serve him with outstanding drug warrants.

He was later arrested after the chase ended at a mall in Fargo, North Dakota.

Large swaths of the golf course were damaged in the pursuit.

An employee at the course said the chase sent golfers running to avoid getting hit.

“I looked out the window and saw a pickup truck coming straight down the driving range.  He swerved out of the way and cut across the fairway. People were running to get out of his way,” said Pro Shop employee Mark Rasmussen.

The suspect is facing felony drug charges along with felony charges for fleeing police and criminal property damage.

Moorhead police are now conducting an internal investigation as to whether officers followed correct protocol in following the suspect onto the golf course.

Officials say the department is also reviewing its chase policies.
