Michigan State police were forced to chase after an inebriated operator of a vehicle in hot pursuit at approximately 10:30 p.m. That’s not so rare. This is: The vehicle they were chasing was a snowmobile.

As reported by MLive, police in Muskegon County, Mich. chased after a fleeing snowmobile that was reported “traveling at a high rate of speed across the football field” at Oakridge High School. Unsurprisingly, the snowmobile driver did not want to be stopped from his ad hoc joy ride, and he quickly dismounted and fled on foot.

The suspect did not win the subsequent race between himself, on foot, and a police car. He was eventually found hiding behind a garage, and the 49-year-old man was arrested on charges of fleeing and eluding.

It’s unclear how much damage his snowmobile did to the Oakridge Field, if it did any at all. Whatever the case, speeding across the artificial turf surface probably wasn’t the safest thing, for either the driver or the field.
