Finally, Here’s Video Of That Nutjob Throwing A Hot Dog At Tiger Woods

After many foiled attempts yesterday at uploading a video of the incident, we’ve got one. As you might have heard, the videos on YouTube of the unbalanced fellow who felt it was a good idea to try to throw a hot dog at Tiger Woods during Sunday’s final round at the Open were getting pulled as soon as they were uploaded. But at long last, it appears we have one that’s here to stay, thanks to the paragons of the press that is TMZ (via Deadspin). And for that, we thank them.


“Some guy just came running on the green, and he had a hot dog, and evidently … I don’t know how he tried to throw it, but I was kind of focusing on my putt when he started yelling,” said Woods, who didn’t seem bothered by it all. “Next thing I know, he laid on the ground, and looked like he wanted to be arrested because he … put his hands behind his back and turned his head.”

Sgt. Jose Cardoza said the man was arrested for disturbing the peace and removed from the property. Because it was a misdemeanor, Cardoza said the man would not be taken to jail and his name not disclosed. Cardoza said only that he was from Santa Rosa.

“He was very cooperative,” Cardoza said. “They said, ‘Why did you do this?’ He just shook his head in guilt or remorse. He didn’t give a reason why he did it.”

Weird stuff, to be sure. But why? Why did this fellow — other than being an unbalancedĀ  individual, clearly — decide Sunday was high time to chuck a wiener at Tiger Woods? Sgt. Cardoza added the man did not appear drunk and added that the still-unidentified man — I think we should refer to him from this point forward as Frank Furter, but I’m an idiotĀ  — was not throwing the hot dog at Tiger, he claimed was just throwing it in the air. Yeah, right. I’m pretty sure Woods hit it right on the head when he said, “I guess he wanted to be in the news. And I’m sure he will be.” Exactly.
