Man arrested trying to get into Augusta National
By The Associated Press
AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) Police say a 50-year-old man was arrested when he tried to get into Augusta National Golf Club in his vehicle.
The Augusta Chronicle reports that Joseph John Murphy tried to access the famed course around 8:40 p.m. Saturday.
Sgt. Glen Rahn said Murphy left promptly after being told he was not allowed to enter the famed course where the Masters tournament is being played this week.
Authorities say Murphy returned in his vehicle about 10 minutes later and bypassed the security guard. Rahn said Murphy was then stopped by Richmond County sheriff's deputies, who arrested him on a criminal trespass charge.
It was not immediately clear whether Murphy had a lawyer.
