WICHITA, Kan. – Someone who posted videos on TikTok showing a golf cart running over a sign on a Wichita golf course and a person chasing geese from a golf cart has been banned from all of the city’s park facilities for a year.

Before the ban was handed down on Thursday, the city had asked on Twitter for help identifying the culprit. Within a couple hours, the city said it had found the man with 150 followers on TikTok who posted the videos after several people identified him.

City officials didn’t identify the offender publicly but they said he would receive a notice about the ban that extends to May 21, 2022.

The rules violations documented on the social media site included destroying parks department property, disturbing wildlife and possessing alcohol, according to The Wichita Eagle.

City spokeswoman Megan Lovely said officials also filed a police report about the violations of city rules that occurred at the Arthur B. Sim Golf Course, but criminal charges aren’t expected at this point.

“He broke course conduct rules and damaged property, but nothing he did warranted an arrest,” Lovely said.
