The man who drove his car into a golf course pond last week has been indicted by a grand jury for failure to comply with an order or signal from a police officer.

Danny R. Scarberry Jr., 52, of Findlay, was charged with the third-degree felony for allegedly fleeing from a State Highway Patrol trooper on Aug. 6. Scarberry “caused a substantial risk of serious physical harm to persons or property,” according to the indictment.

Scarberry, who was indicted in July for a 2015 aggravated robbery, was spotted at the Pilot on Ohio 613 and fled when a trooper tried to pull him over, according to Lt. Matt Crow with the State Highway Patrol. Scarberry drove onto the course at Birch Run Golf Club in North Baltimore, and crashed into the pond by the eighth hole.

He was able to exit the car and flee to a nearby creek before being arrested.

TommyBoy Towing removed the Dodge Caliber from the pond.

Scarberry’s first-degree felony aggravated robbery charge is for allegedly taking cash from Keith’s Dugout in Findlay in October 2015.
