Golfer John Daly gets drunk at Hooters, so much so that he passes out, and police take him to jail so he can “sober up”. Read more about the story plus more photos and video of John Daly below.
John Daly was at the Hooters in Winston-Salem, North Carolina over the weekend, where he got drunk and eventually passed out at the restaurant. He refused to go to the hospital to seek treatment, so the establishment contacted police. Daly told authorities that he was traveling in a tour bus and the people on board did not want him back on the bus. Hooters was in the midst of closing, so the police decided to take him in for his own “safety“.
A friend of Daly’s, Ira Lee Dean, was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct after he got a little hot under the collar and threw obscenities at the officers. Daly was held at Forsyth County Jail Sunday morning so he could sober up and was later released.
Daly’s former coach, Butch Harmon, has spoken of Daly in the past:
“The most important thing in his life is getting drunk.”
Of course, Hooters has been a sponsor for Daly since 2005.
