I'm just trying to find my balls! (via Ada County Sheriff's Office)

Nathan M McCoy, 21, went to the cops to lodge a complaint that a woman had violated a restraining order he had put out against her. Not only was his complaint untrue, but in fact he was on probation himself -- for a stalking case. When police figured this out, McCoy took off in a sprint.

He raced away through some nearby homes in Eagle, ID, and the cops chased after him on foot for 15 minutes before McCoy jumped into the middle of a pond at Eagle Hill Golf course, near the 5th hole. That's when everyone participated in a very stupid-looking standoff.

After about half an hour, the cops convinced the stalker that swimming hours were over and took him into custody, where he was charged with probation violation, filing a false police report and resisting arrest.

Are his eyes red from crying, swimming, or drugs? It's anybody's guess!

Bad day for McCoy, but a good one for the golfers; Ada County Sheriff's Office reports that only one ball landed near the pond while they were there.
