STAMFORD, Conn. — He may have been caught on the golf course, but it's a West Side apartment where Ernest Bailey probably wishes he could have taken a Mulligan.

The 49-year-old Stamford man was arrested Thursday after he was chased from a woman's apartment and tracked down by police officers on golf carts, according to the Stamford Advocate.

Bailey is accused of breaking into the apartment about 2:30 p.m. Thursday, according to the Advocate, which reported that a woman who lives there returned home lunch to find Bailey in the building’s stairwell with a bag that belonged to her.

The woman grabbed the bag from Bailey and then chased him out the door, following him down West Broad Street, according to the Advocate, which reported that Bailey then hopped a fence and ended up on the E. Gaynor Brennan Golf Course.

City police officers set up a perimeter around the course as members of the Narcotics and Organized Crime unit took to chasing him in golf carts, according to the Advocate.

Whether or not he found time to get in a back nine was unclear, but Bailey was eventually tracked down, arrested and charged with second-degree burglary, fourth-degree larceny and criminal mischief, according to the Advocate.
