Police stop golf course brawl that involved weapons and resulted in broken bones
Two foursomes were reportedly involved in a golf course brawl that involved weapons and resulted in broken bones. And if you guessed this ugly incident stemmed from slow play, you guessed right.
According to Birmingham Live, police responded to the fight on Friday at Greenway Hall Golf Club in Stockton Brook (England), racing onto the course in golf carts to keep things from getting worse. However, a Staffordshire Police spokesperson said "bones had been broken" by the time they got there.
Four men were arrested on suspicion of assault, but weren't charged.
"I'm very proud of my officers," Chief Inspector John Owen said. "They've used initiative, gone to a fight (as we always do) outnumbered, and have resolved it resulting in peace and order. Hole in one I'd say!"
Ha! Get it?
But seriously, folks. Slow play is no joke. Be careful out there -- and play faster.
