Golfer John Daly detained after passing out drunk at Hooters
Golf Magazine ^ | October 29, 2008

When you hear the words "Hooters," "John Daly" and "extremely intoxicated" in the same sentence, you know where this story is going.

In the latest chapter of Daly's longtime struggle with alcohol abuse, he was held overnight in a North Carolina jail after passing out at a Hooters restaurant...

According to police, Daly "appeared extremely intoxicated and uncooperative." Daly again refused to go to the hospital and was eventually asked to leave by Hooters employees...

Because Daly had no transportation, police said they held him in custody at a local jail until he sobered up.

Sleeping off a drunk in a North Carolina jail...

Who was the character on the Andy Griffith show that did that repeatedly?

“Because Daly had no transportation”

Was he ‘playing through’ and just not make it the whole way?

Otis Campbell, that law should have been named the “Otis” law.

At least he didn't get charged with DUI. Sleeping off a good drunk in jail, is alot easier without having to be arraigned in the morning.

Otis and he had his own key to his usual cell.
John Daley is at this point.
Talk about a guy who could have been one of the Greats, wasted talent and now this guy is truly spiraling out of control.

Well, I haven't exactly passed out ... however, I've fallen asleep between a couple from time to time.

I’d call passing out at Hooters a two-shot penalty.

Amazing how much they look alike. But all kidding aside, this is a very sad situation. John has hit bottom before, and I was hoping he had managed to conquer his demons. It looks like he has not, and that is very bad news. We all need to say a prayer for him.

Yea - I first saw the story on Yahoo news this afternoon and the article contained this picture. The first thing I thought was "he could be Otis' son. Then - after reading how he was allowed to sleep it off in a NC jail - it was a bit surreal.

But - you're right - it's a shame to see how low he has sunk. I wish I had 1/4 of the golf game he has.
