Golf nee-naahs called to golf brawl
Quick thinking cops tackle 'slow-play' punch up
Words: Tim Southwell
Golf nee-naahs were activated in order to tackle a mad eight-man golf club brawl as police raced to tackle golf hooligans on the fourth hole of Greenway Hall GC in Stockton Brook.
The cops jumped in two buggies and made haste to the scene, arresting four men on suspicion of assault. But they have now decided to take no further action and the golfers have been released without charge.
A Staff Police spokesman said: "Our officers used their initiative and utilised two golf buggies when they were called to reports of an incident at the golf course.
"Four men were arrested at the scene on suspicion of assault. Following inquiries, they were later released without further action. A man was treated at the scene for minor injuries."
