IU golfer makes big donation; gets arrested

PGA golfer Jeff Overton was in attendance for Indiana’s upset win on Saturday to make a hefty donation to his alma mater. Overton was introduced to the crowd during a timeout late in the game (terrible timing because it silenced the rowdy crowd) and he presented a $50,000 check to Indiana University for the Play Golf America University program. It was a generous donation from the 2010 U.S. Ryder Cup member and I’m sure it helped get him those courtside seats for the big game.

However, the real story from Overton’s visit to Bloomington came after the game when he was arrested for resisting law enforcement, public intoxication, and disorderly conduct. Overton was reportedly yelling at people from his limo when police told the driver to move along. The car moved a little bit and stopped again so Overton could continue his belligerence. When police asked the pro golfer to step out of the vehicle, he responded by saying “he wasn’t going to do anything.”

Welcome home, hero.

    This guy’s a complete ass on the PGA tour and it looks like he’s a complete ass in everyday life as well.

    He played the skin flute and tugged on the bald headed pappy back in high school… Didn’t even know he played golf? Must have been a late bloomer..

    Overton is not a Mizuno guy anymore. His contract expired after the 2010 season, and he switched to a different manufacturer after that. Luke Donald is a Mizuno guy though!

    That’d look like Matt Jones if he dropped a few pounds and got a gayer haircut.

    Maybe his arrest will encourage other drunken, angry IU rowdies finally to get help.

    He was also arrested in 2007 for public intoxication. The guy either watches to much Mad Men or was in a fraternity because in fraternity logic, $50,000 is the amount of damage he thinks he can legally get away with.

    You know why Hoosiers put their trash in clear trash bags?

    So Kentuckians can go “window shopping”

    You guys at KSR are so obsessed with IU and UofL.. it is entertaining.
