Update: The Brit who interrupted Webb Simpson as he was being interviewed by Bob Costas after winning the U.S. Open Championship golf tournament was drunk, police said.

Andrew James Dudley, 40, of Wallasey, United Kingdom was briefly detained by police after he snuck in front of TV cameras and made bird noises. Dudley was wearing a goofy Union-Jack outfit when he was hauled off by police.

It was funny to see Costas come across as a humorless jerk.

Who says Brits are humorless, stiff-upper-lip people?

Maybe he was just trying to find Obama? The guy who spends more time on the greens than in the WH?

If Costas moves too fast or laughs, his toupee could slip off.

Someone just needs to insert Birdman into every Bamster presser pic/vid (like the pepper spray cop).

After paying probably at least $125 for his ticket who can blame him for wanting to have some fun?

I think pro-golf could use more of it. And scantily clad cheerleaders. Maybe some violence too - how about the 2nd place gets a beatdown by his sponsor and/or caddy? Speaking of caddy... maybe Cadillac sponsor a ‘Sudden-death-race’ should there be a tie. The two top finishers get chaced through the parking lot with an CTS-V and the last one standing gets the Green Jacket or whatever.

No, no, no I’ve got it - at the halfway point they do shots of tequilla, put on blindfolds, and start swinging 9 irons at each other?

My gosh, it’s a long summer until Football season.

Dear Jeremy Clarkson, Care Of TOP GEAR TV Show: He was British.....driving a Rover on the wrong side of the road.....thought that football was played with a round ball.....was angry because he ordered chips and biscuits and didn’t get fries and cookies.....thought that Big Ben was some timepiece instead of the quarterback for the Steelers.....

He was drunk? Really? I would have never guessed that in a million years. LOL

I do like the fact that the police/Olympic/USGA did not make a big deal over it though. Let the guy sober up and sent him on his way.

In NY Bloomberg would have probably had him executed in Central park and then banned the wearing of any funny headgear.

Did I do something wrong? Neither the video nor the picture were taken from the SFGate site—got them from a google search.

What?! A guy who books John McEnroe AND Bill Maher on the same show? You tellin' me that he doesn't have a sense of humor?
