Coaches caught drunk driving with one of their athletes in the car? Now that’s a little less common, but it still, unfortunately, it happens.
But a coach who is actually drinking while driving with a teen in tow, missing a turn, hitting a street sign, jumping a guard rail AND THEN SLAMMING INTO A TREE? Sounds like he should jump out and yell, “Ta da!” except in this case the cops arrived before he could celebrate this motoring miracle and he decided to assault the officer instead of doing the Olympic gymnast victory pose. Too bad, based on the difficulty of the maneuver he likely would have received a perfect 10 from the drunk Russian judge (are there any other kind.)
Okay, okay, you’re probably worried about the kid in the car. He’s fine . . . although he’ll never to get into a car to talk to an angry, drunk coach about his disappointing “C” grades ever again.
Needless to say, Sussex Tech assistant wrestling coach and English teacher Kurt L. Scheck faces a buttload of charges as a result of his little Evil Knievil stunt jump, including driving under the influence, resisting arrest with force or violence, driving with a suspended license, failure to have insurance, careless driving and endangering the welfare of a child. Oh, and there was something about a road rage incident last summer, but that is only going to be the icing on the legal cake for Coach Scheck after all this.
For those golfers out there who ever worried about someone stealing their cart while they’re putting, some teenager in Cape Coral, Florida just make your nightmare come true. Seems there were two old guys not paying attention to their electric vehicle and a much faster teen jumped in and took off. The good news? He tossed out their two bags of golf clubs (probably to lighten the load). The bad news? He kept a number of other valuable items, such as a wallet, cash, a GPS, a cell phone, a money clip, some golf club head covers . . . and a snappy sleeveless brown sweater.
So, BadJocks readers in Florida: be on the lookout for a teenager tooling around in a golf cart, talking on a cell phone, following directions from a GPS and wearing what looks like his grandpa’s clothes. Call the cops if you see him, but please take a picture for us first.
The victim, a resident of North Fort Myers, and his partner were putting at one of the holes at the Coral Oak Gold Course, at 1800 N.W. 28th Ave., when the man looked over his shoulder and saw his rental cart being driven off by an unknown teenager Wednesday afternoon.
According to a police report, the teen appeared between 15 and 18 years of age and was wearing a black and white shirt. The teen dumped both golf club bags, but he took the victim’s wallet, a GPS, a cell phone, a money clip, golf club head covers, cash and a sleeveless brown sweater. The stolen items are valued at approximately $693. The cart is worth about $4,000. It is beige and has the sticker “74″ on it.
You know, at most high schools, if there is going to be a brawl during a basketball game it usually involves the players. Or at least a coach and some players or some fans and some players. Rarely do the athletes sit back and just watch the drama unfold, but that is exactly what happened in Charlotte, NC during a game between the Butler Bulldogs and the East Mecklenburg Eagles. Apparently a Butler player’s father got into an argument when a school resource officer (read that as a police officer who spends his whole time keeping kids at one school out of trouble) asked the man’s daughter to sit on the opposite side of the gym with her own school’s fans. The two of them got into it, then the man’s wife and daughter jumped in and started hitting the officer on the head. Ultimately only dad got arrested and could face a number of charges related to the incident. Watch the video for yourself below.

According to the folks at our favorite British tabloid, The Sun, a Polish swimming champion named Luiza Hryniewicz will be making her debut as a model next month. Specifically, a naked model in an upcoming issue of Playboy magazine. Hryniewicz has won several European swimming championships (including a Bronze Medal in the 2005 event’s 50 m breaststroke), but has apparently decided that her future lies in modeling.
And the sizzling topless snaps of the 21-year-old Junior European champ from Lodz, Poland, show she’s certainly a big fan of the breast stroke. Hryniewicz, who bagged a gold medal in the championships as a 15-year-old in 2005, said: “Swimming was fun, but modelling is better. The swimming helped shape my figure and that’s helped me get the photo shoots I always wanted.”
In some parts of the country, municipal golf courses are great cash cows for cities strapped for funds and they bring in a small, but steady stream of much needed revenue. In other places, the clubs struggle to hang on, sometimes costing towns money to keep them open. Then there’s the Eagle’s Landing Golf Club in Sevierville, Tennessee where the course should have been making good money of the past two years, but wasn’t. Seems like a lot of golfers were buying rounds and then asking for refunds. And we’re talking about a LOT of refunds: over 95K worth in just over two years. That’s a lot of guys changing their minds after the fact, and how often does that seem to happen? Trouble is, it only seemed to happen when Faye Randolph was working the cash register.
So, after only two years and all that missing money, someone finally decided to investigate and now Faye is accused of creating fake refunds to cover the fact that she was allegedly skimming from the golf course. She even reportedly created a second set of books to hide the fact that there weren’t any refunds. No word yet on what Randolph allegedly spent the money on, but guessing from the mug shot at right, it was something wild, right? Right?
Faye Randolph, 46, arrested last week after a grand jury returned a seven-count indictment, created records showing fictitious refunds for rounds of golf at the former Eagle’s Landing Golf Club to conceal cash she took from the clubhouse between Jan. 1, 2008, and March 14, 2010, according to a letter released by state authorities. Officials allege that Randolph stole $95,139 from the course.
Randolph is accused of destroying the original records that reflected the actual amounts of money collected from course fees, Dycus wrote. The actual amounts collected were significantly higher than what Randolph reported on a regular basis, according to Dycus.
