Golfer Accused Of Attacking Man With Club

A man in Seminole County, Fla., was arrested on a golf course after witnesses said he used a golf club to attack another golfer in an apparent fit of rage, according to a Local 6 News report.

Deputies said Rodney Hearon became involved in a dispute Wednesday with a golfer at the Wekiva Springs Golf and Country Club in Longwood, Fla.

Witnesses said the Hearon and another man asked two other golfers if they could pass in front of them near the tenth hole on the course. The men declined to allow the pair to pass, citing that the golf course was full and that there was still a group in front of them, a police report said.

A verbal altercation ensued and during the exchange, witnesses said Hearon chased one of the men with a golf club and swung it about one foot from his head.

Deputies arrested Hearon and charged him with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Hearon remains behind bars in the Seminole County Jail.
