A golfer was shot on a course in Nevada after he shanked a ball into a man's house and broke a window. Jeff Fleming, 53, was charged with assault with a deadly weapon and battery with a deadly weapon for spraying two golfers with a shotgun after one of them accidentally hit his house on Thursday.
Fleming lives near the 16th hole of Lakeridge Golf course in southwest Reno, police said. He came charging out of his house at around 3:30 p.m. after a stray ball broke through his window, authorities said. After arguing with the two golfers, the angry resident fired the weapon, grazing one in the leg and the arm, police said.
The 33-year-old was taken to a local hospital and later released. His injuries weren't life threatening. The golfers weren’t identified. Fleming fled his house after the shooting but was later arrested at his lawyer's office.
The golf course stayed open after the shooting, though the 16th hole was shut down. Golfers said Fleming's reaction was way out of bounds. "I think buying a house on the course you got to be prepared for golf balls to come into your property," said golfer Dan Dooley.
