[Golfer John Daly, seen here, literally pissing away a great life.]
CSTB’s Gerard Cosloy was provided today with the 4000th opportunity to use his favorite Animal House quote, “Fat, drunk, and stupid is no way to go through life son.” Paramedics found John Daly passed out near a Hooter’s restaurant in North Carolina. Reports that he let himself into his own cell with the key, provided by the local sherriff and his deputy, are as yet unconfirmed. Cosloy has no plans to retire the joke.
WINSTON-SALEM, North Carolina (AFP) ” Two-time major golf champion John Daly spent a night in jail at the weekend after police here found him drunk outside a restaurant, the Winston-Salem Journal reported on Wednesday.
Police Lieutenant Tyrone Phelps told the newspaper that Daly was held at the Forsyth County Jail early Sunday morning to sober up.
According to the newspaper, paramedics went to a Hooters restaurant at 1 am after receiving a report that Daly had passed out.
