PGA Star reportedly arrested
PGA Tour golfer Jeff Overton faces three misdemeanor charges after he allegedly resisted arrest in Indiana as police tried to arrest him for public intoxication and disorderly conduct.

Overton, 28, a native of Indiana, drew the attention of officers by yelling at people from his limousine, WFIE-TV reported, citing information from police.

Overton's limousine was blocking traffic as he yelled at people in front of a sports bar, the Courier-Press reported, citing a detail from a police report, before he was later seen yelling at passers-by outside a police station, where he was arrested.

The police report labeled Overton as "belligerent" and said he told officers he "wasn't going to do anything."

Overton told the Bloomington Herald-Times, "I feel my rights were violated. I'm sitting in my own limo and got pulled out. Other than that, I'm going to let my lawyer handle it."

The newspaper also reported three previous alcohol-related arrests of the golfer in 2007, 2003 and 2001.

All were dismissed after Overton completed pre-trial diversion programs.

Overton had appeared earlier in the night at an Indiana-Kentucky college basketball game to present a $50,000 check for the Play Golf America initiative run by the PGA and LPGA tours, US Golf Association and PGA of America.
