Kenneth Gonzalez, 21, of Navarre was charged with DUI, property damage and careless driving on Oct. 20 after driving his vehicle through Hidden Creek Golf Club.
According to a Florida Highway Patrol report, Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s deputies responded to PGA Boulevard around 11 p.m. because a Nissan Xterra was improperly parked on the golf course. Deputies arrived on scene and knocked on the Gonzalez’s car window to wake him up. The knocking startled Gonzalez and as a result, he stepped on the accelerator and began to travel west through the golf course.
According to the report, deputies began to chase the vehicle on foot. The vehicle continued traveling west before entering into the backyard of the residence on Masters Boulevard. The front of the vehicle struck a screen terrace in the back of the residence.
Gonzalez was not injured, according to the report, but his vehicle suffered $2,000 worth of damage.
