A broken heart can make a person do silly things -- or in the case of 23-year-old Austin Christopher from western New York, downright stupid things.
WIVB Channel 4 News in New York has a report about Christopher from over the weekend, who was arrested after causing more than $50,000 worth of damage to local golf courses with his pick-up truck.
The reason for the destruction? Christopher told police it was because he was upset after his girlfriend dumped him.
Christopher was caught after a neighbor near Harvest Hill Golf Course in Orchard Park, N.Y., called 911 to report the incident that tore up the ninth green.
Christopher may have been tougher to catch had he not initially driven past the 18th green, where nearby surveillance cameras allowed police to easily identify the suspect.
When police caught up to Christopher, there was still turf stuck to his tires.
According to the news report, Christopher was released after posting bail, but was right back in police custody after it was discovered that he also tore up a practice area at another nearby golf course -- Bob-O-Link Golf Club.
Christopher is now being held on $25,000 bail, charged with criminal trespassing and criminal mischief -- a felony.
