Yes, that headline is 100% accurate. Someone was arrested yesterday after throwing a hot dog at Tiger Woods.
The unnamed spectator was attending the Frys.com Open in San Martin, CA when he inexplicably raced onto the golf course and threw his hot dog at Tiger Woods during the tournament’s final round. As if the story itself wasn’t strange enough, consider some of the quotes:
“I turned around and the hot dog was in the air,” Woods said, via Reuters. “I guess he wanted to be in the news.
According to Arjun Atwal, who played with Woods in the final round, the bun landed by the man and the hot dog flew across Woods’ putting line. “Just the dog flew out,” Atwal said. It was a surreal scene, Atwal said. “That guy could have got shot, the way he ran out with that hot dog,” said Atwal, who fired a 67. “The cops there could have thought it was something else.”
After launching the hot dog, the man immediately surrendered to the police. Sgt. Jose Cardoza described him as “cooperative” though unable to explain his actions:
The man, according to Cardoza, said he wasn’t throwing at Woods, just tossing the hot dog in the air. Although he said he’d had a drink earlier, he was not intoxicated.
