This 40-year old guy was arrested at the Masters on Sunday. See if you can guess what for!
He didn’t attack anyone or cause a disturbance during the event. He didn’t even try to throw hot dogs at Tiger Woods. No, this perfectly sober gent was arrested for disobeying the guard ropes and trying to scoop up a sand trap with his red Solo cup.
The full report, from The Augusta Chronicle:
Richmond County sheriff’s Capt. Scott Gay said Clayton Price Baker, of Ohio, slipped under the ropes following the tournament and attempted to put the sand in his cup.
After a short foot chase by Augusta National security and sheriff’s deputies, Baker was apprehended and charged with disorderly conduct.
Gay said Baker, who was drinking heavily at the time of the incident, was unsuccessful at getting any of the sand in his cup.
I’ve heard worse plans. People pay two-hundred bucks for sh*t like that in SkyMall. And I know the last sentence is supposed to suggest that he was arrested before he got to the sand trap, but I like to imagine the sadder scenario wherein he knelt in the sand for like twenty minutes, scooping up piles of it with his hands and never being able to hold onto it long enough to get it into the cup like some Hellbound physical challenge on ‘Double Dare’.
Advice for next year: skip the Masters and go get drunk on the beach.
