Former golf great John Daly was arrested on the weekend after police found him drunk outside a Hooters Restaurant in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
Daly’s condition first came to the attention of police after paramedics were called to the Hooters restaurant after Daly passed out. When police arrived, they found Daly drunk and unwilling to go to hospital. Daly was charged with disorderly conduct and held in jail for 24 hours to “sober up.”
Daly has a long history with the bottle, crashing to personal lows after winning two majors in the 1990s. He had apparently straightened himself out at one stage, but it looks like the demon drink got the better of him.
It’s just sad. Such an immense waste of talent.
