We’ve seen a ton of bizarre golf crime stories in the past few years, including thefts caught on video, golf course vandalism and physical altercations resulting in injury. But rarely will you see something like this.

Last Sunday night, a few days after being voted off the board of directors of Conway Country Club in Conway, S.C., Christopher Lloyd Ross barricaded himself inside the clubhouse, initiating an eight-hour standoff with police, according to a report in The Sun News of Myrtle Beach, S.C.  

He ultimately was arrested and charged with second-degree nonviolent burglary, the newspaper reported, citing a warrant.

The story gets even stranger: This wasn’t the first time he had been arrested that weekend. According to the newspaper report, police responded to the same golf club the preceding Friday night – the day after Ross had been voted off the board – after reports of lights on inside the building and a vehicle outside. Police were told Ross, 53, was not supposed to be there and gave him a “lawful order,” which he ignored, The Sun News reported, citing a report from an unspecified source.

Ross then ran from police but was later found and charged with resisting arrest and disobeying a police officer, the newspaper reported. (See more photos at The Sun News)
