Does This Look Like The Face Of A Golfer Who Attacked The Group In Front Of Him For Malingering On The Greens?
Jacksonville – A battle erupted Saturday on the 18th green of the Jacksonville Beach Municipal Golf Course, but it had nothing to do with winning. Police arrested a 61-year-old Jacksonville man after witnesses said he slammed his golf cart into a group of bachelor partygoers, whacked one with his golf club and started a brawl. At one point James Alonzo Hines shouted he was a veteran of the course and complained about the group taking too long, Hampe said.”The first thing he said was, ‘You need to respect your elders,’ ” said Hampe, 27, of Jacksonville Beach. They were among six friends celebrating the May 5 wedding of buddy Donald Salsbery. Hampe said the group, some of whom had just learned how to golf, had a few drinks at a nearby bar and joined Salsbery for the mid-afternoon golf outing at his request. The other group — two older men and two older women — were golfing behind the partygoers, said witness Justin Ravel. Ravel, who saw the initial confrontation from the 18th tee, said one of the women told him they had become incensed with the younger golfers driving on the greens and holding up their game. “She said they weren’t playing the game right and that clearly ticked them [Hines' party] off,” Ravel said. Hines’ arrest report said an argument between the groups involved the younger golfers driving, drinking and “malingering” on the greens. He said Hines then began hitting balls at them from about 200 yards away. One of the balls was heaved back at Hines, who then hopped in his cart and headed for the group, police and witnesses said. Ravel, 23, said he heard the shouting, saw a golf ball fly back and forth and then watched as Hines drove into the group. “He drove the cart as fast as it could go,” Ravel said.Hampe said he jumped out of his cart just before Hines ran over his leg and slammed into Hankin, pinning him against another cart.”He ran right over my buddy and caught me, too,” Hampe said. “He went full bore.” Hampe said he was then struck by the club and saw Hines grab for another. Ravel said he arrived about that time to see Hines and a companion holding clubs over their heads and their female partners also brandishing clubs. Hampe said his friends jumped on Hines to protect him and the group tumbled into a sand trap. Police arrived moments later.
To quote Peter McNeeley if you don’t respect this old geezer for attacking the group in front of him for malingering on the greens than you sir have a big dump in your pants. Like I only needed to read one sentence to know this guy was in the right;
“Six friends at a bachelor party who had a few drinks beforehand and just learned to golf.”
Yikes. Talk about hell on earth. I can’t even imagine sitting behind that sixsome for 4 hours. At some point you have to snap and that’s exactly what this old battle ax did. I ain’t mad at him. I’d do the same exact fucking thing if I were him. And I just hope the First Lady would have my back like this guy’s wife did. Don’t ask questions. Just come in clubs ablazzing. That’s the type of ride or die bitch I need.
