A 23-year-old woman told police she drove through Chambers Bay Golf Course and vandalized it so she wouldnt hurt her girlfriend after a fight, court records show.
Pierce County prosecutors have charged the woman with second-degree malicious mischief, DUI and second-degree criminal trespass for the July 27 incident. She has not yet entered a plea.
A security guard spotted the woman driving across the course about 11 p.m. and confronted her at a gate, charging papers state. The woman threatened to ram the gate if the guard didnt open it for her.
The womans car had a smashed windshield and extensive body damage.
When questioned by police, the woman allegedly said she drank five beers and five shots after the fight with her girlfriend, then drove to the golf course.
She admitted to smashing a gate and driving into lots of stuff on the course before the guard stopped her.
There is at least $2,000 worth of damage to the golf course but that figure may increase substantially, according to court records.
