I was just getting ready to post that.

Takes a flare gun to a disc golf course, he must lose a lot of discs deep in the woods.

"Disc Golf Game Goes Bad?"

Too many people will just see the headline, assume a bunch of pot smoking DG'ers were up to no good, not even read the story,and make a bunch of assumptions. Irresponsible headlines don't help sell the game.

Headline should read,
"Idjit with a Criminal History Assaults Park Patron with a Flare Gun"

That it happened on a course is irrelevant. That someone with a history takes a flare gun with them to the park and decides to threaten someone with it... is the story.

The only found I wanna see in the park are guys with cannons parking holes I'm happy to get a 3 on.

That headline is less interesting, though. I like a little narrative in my "news".

According to authorities, Peters told the officers that he got in an argument and warned the other player to leave him alone because he had a flare gun in his bag, but denied ever pulling the flare gun out.

However, officers did not believe Peters’ story, since the victim was able to describe the flare gun in detail to them.
Goddanged criminal mastermind right there.
