It’s still early in the year, but this very well could be our “Bad Jock of the Year” story for 2011. Just listen to this: The nice folks in Corbin, Kentucky, like many communities this time of year, were having a charity golf scramble to raise money for a good cause. In this case, it was the Joey Taylor Memorial Golf Scramble, named after local avid golfer Joey Taylor, with the proceeds going to help fund the budding career of a young local golfer. All good there. Sounds like everyone was having a good time at the tournament . . . maybe too good a time.
It seems the Taylor family wasn’t pleased with some of the “obscene” behavior going on at the scramble being held in their loved one’s named and threatened to pull their name off the event. This apparently upset the scramble’s organizer, one Danny Davenport, who apparently made significant enough threats against the family that the cops had to be called . . . to a charity golf event. Officers promptly arrived at the Williamsburg Country Club and Golf Course and stopped all the vehicles leaving the event.
Now, enter “exotic dancers” Amythyst Brown, 20, and Lacresia Moberly, 25, who–when stopped by police–claimed they had been hired by the previously mentioned Danny Davenport to sell alcohol and food. Sure. (He probably had no idea they were strippers when he hired them.) Because Brown had jumped out of her car at the entrance where police were stopping vehicles, officers quickly determined from her breath that she likely was a prime candidate for a DUI. So, they searched her car and found a small amount of weed and a little blue pill. Later Brown admitted to officers that the pill was the party drug Ecstasy and she had been selling them for $20 a pop at the scramble to make a little side money because “times were rough and she had to support her 5-year-old.” Oh, and she also just found out that she’s pregnant AGAIN. Moberly, a passenger in Brown’s car, was also apparently extremely drunk and arrested on alcohol intoxication charges.
If the Taylor family had any doubts about pulling their name from the event, the arrest of two drunk strippers, one selling Ecstasy to the players could very well seal the deal.
Now THAT’S a bad jock story. Video from WKYT below.
You want me to do WHAT, Judge Smails?
We don’t remember seeing this at all in Caddyshack, do you? Or did they cut out that scene where Danny Noonan has sex with one of the club members after 18 holes of lugging his bag around. (That, in itself, just sounds wrong.) No, we’re pretty sure we’d remember something like that after having seen the movie about 100 times.
So it must be that the caddies (in this case female caddies) in Indonesia are the first ones to pull the “two-fer” offering both golf logistics services and sexual relaxation services in one convenient package. And, of course, they seemed happy with the arrangement as did most of their clients, but for some reason the Indonesian authorities aren’t quite as enthusiastic about this advancement in “sports entertainment” as you might think.
It’s this kind of government intervention that’s killing entrepreneurship!
Maybe Danny can earn that caddy scholarship after all?
Details from Yahoo! Sports:
A group of female Indonesian golf caddies at a resort in Kulai, Malaysia, are doing more than just carrying golfers’ bags and giving golfing tips to players. They also provide sexual services. The state Immigration Department found this out when they arrested 26 Indonesian female caddies. Johor enforcement unit head Mohd Nakhafi Hasan said the department received a tip-off on the caddies who worked at the reputable golf resort.
“The women usually work as caddies at the resort during the day and then prostitute themselves to golfers during the night. All the female caddies were detained during the operation conducted at about 8am at the resort,” he said, adding that the women were aged between 21 and 46.
The greatest criminal in Texas history has finally been caught! Okay, maybe the greatest fake golf tournament criminal in Texas history, but still, this guy was the best at what he did. . . even though it was really, really wrong.
Meet John Mark Moyers (mug shot, right) who has been traveling Arkansas and Texas for the past two years (yes, two years!) running fake golf tournaments and charity food drives. His basic scam: reserve a golf course for a tournament (for a good cause, naturally) then start collecting entry fees, prizes, gift cards and other donations from local businesses–all while living it up at a local hotel. Then, just before the tournament he would skip town and run the same scam somewhere else. The fact that he was able to support himself for two years is amazing and disgusting at the same time. What he did meant money that probably would have gone to a reputable charity did not, and folks who might otherwise be very open to an event like this now have a bitter taste in their mouths. Bad man!
Details from the Dallas Morning News:
John Mark Moyers, 50, was taken into custody March 24, accused of felony theft over accusations that he scammed local businesses out of thousands for a fake golf tournament in Weatherford. He remains held on the Parker County jail in lieu $7,500 bail. Authorities believe Moyers perpetrated nearly one dozen similar scams in Texas and Arkansas over the last two years, raking in as much as $70,000, according to a news release outlining Moyers’ alleged misdeeds.
Police say they discovered the con job when a victim of a scam in Little Rock, told the Weatherford golf course about Moyers. In his Weatherford hotel room, authorities found receipt books, showing he’d collected more than $5,000 from the fake Weatherford tournament, authorities said. Police say Moyers would tell the golf courses that he planned to reserve the course for a tournament. He’d then promote the event, but would not pay the deposit, police said.
As part of the ruse, he collected entry fees, donations, gift cards, door prizes and money from area businesses before skipping town, police said. Moyers told investigators he used the ill-gotten profits to support himself for more than two years while living in hotels.
