You know, there’s drunk, and then there’s “crazy drunk. It also leads to great mug shots, doesn’t it? Here’s more on the story from USA Today:
Former Oakland Raiders and Cal Poly assistant coach Randy Hanson faces assault and battery charges for an Aug. 4 incident in which he allegedly smashed a beer bottle into the face of a man and then locked himself in a limo, the San Luis Obispo Tribune reports.
Arrested for just playing golf? Probably not going to happen.
Arrested for playing golf drunk? We suppose it could happen, but the numbers are small compared to the actual number of drunk golfers each weekend.
But if you’re a drunk golfer AND teeing off in the middle of a busy street in Cologne, Germany then, maybe you might get arrested. That happened to a man this week after a taxi driver let a passenger out and heard a loud thud on his car. He spotted some damage, a golf ball nearby and then the drunken linkster not far away. Of course, the cabbie chased down the guy, but when confronted, this golfer pulled out his knife instead of his 9 iron and that’s when police where called.
Former college football stud–and NFL bust–Ryan Leaf was arrested for burglary on Monday, just days after posting bail for the same crime. When you can’t even stay out of trouble until you’ve gone to trial for your last crime, you know you’ve got a problem.
Leaf was first arrested on Friday after police found oxycodone pills in his golf bag that an acquaintance later said Leaf stole from his home. Then early Monday, three days after posting a $76,000 bond, he was arrested again on accusations that he broke into another home outside Great Falls, Central Montana Drug Task Force commander Chris Hickman said.
The owners walked into the home Sunday afternoon to find a “tall man with an athletic build” inside, Hickman said. The man told the owners he had the wrong address and left. The owners later discovered three bottles of prescription medication missing and phoned police. After describing his truck, his clothes and his “shiny black loafers,” they picked Leaf out of a photo lineup.
A search of Leaf’s home turned up 89 hydrocodone pills loose in the pocket of a bathrobe. Authorities do not believe those were the same pills that were taken from the burgled home, Hickman said.
Leaf, of course, is famous for not living up to expectations in the NFL, and freaking out in a locker room interview after loss. Video footage below, for the two people out there who have never seen it.
