Here’s a story I picked up from the wires this morning about a guy from Nevada called Jeff Fleming who went berserk with a shotgun after a stray drive broke a window in his house. Irate Fleming, 53, shot at the pair he suspected on the 16th hole, hitting the man who hit his house. The golfer was not seriously injured; he was treated for minor pellet wounds to an arm and both legs.
According to neighbours “it’s not unusual for balls to strike the houses that line the fairways” at Lakeridge Golf Course. All the homes were evacuated after the shooting, after Fleming could not be found. He was later arrested at his attorney’s office, where he surrendered. He was released early yesterday after posting $40,000 bail.
