What starts in the park, after a graveyard detour, ends in the park as softball players come to the rescue
A 24-year-old local man fleeing police through Hoffman Park ball fields was finally tackled in the dirt by a softball player. He was joined by his teammates in subduing the suspect until River Falls officers caught up.
This took place Monday night, July 28. Earlier that night the man, with a male passenger, had allegedly run over a bike at Hoffman Park before hitting a no-parking sign as he sped away.
