PALM COAST, Fla. (Daytona Beach (Fla.) News-Journal) — Deputies have arrested a 74-year-old Florida man who allegedly pointed a BB gun at golfers in Palm Coast.

News outlets report that John Robert Orr was upset over rule-breakers, but this is not a story about people violating stay-at-home orders.

In fact, some of Florida's golf courses have remained open for business during the coronavirus pandemic.

Orr reportedly told deputies that other players at the Conservatory Golf Course were driving their carts on the putting greens and over a wooden bridge that's designed for walking.

Orr said he tried to get in contact with authorities on Friday but couldn't reach them and so decided to take matters into his own hands.
