What is it with major championships and strange golf cart incidents? 

At the US Open we saw somebody get a DWI after hitting a state trooper and we nearly saw the same thing at this year's British Open.

Here's the story from the New York Times

"Merseyside police said in a statement emailed to The Associated Press that a 45-year-old man from the local area took the golf cart from the course and collided with the guard, who sustained a slight leg injury."

Here's what the police said.

"We can confirm that a man has been arrested following an incident at The Open golf practice day in Hoylake at about 7:30 p.m. this evening," police said. "One man was arrested on suspicion of assault ... Just before colliding with the barrier the buggy caught a security guard causing a slight injury to his leg."

We need to curb the golf cart incidents at majors!
