Yep, you guessed it...Florida. Delray Beach to be specific. 74-year-old Robert Levine is under arrest for attempted first-degree murder for shooting 64-year-old Herbert Merritt in the ankle and beating him with a golf club after he found Merritt walking his dog along the 15th hole of Kings Point Golf Club just before 7 p.m. on Sunday. Per Golf Digest...
quote:

....Here’s how it went down according to Merritt (as reported by WPBF News):

“Merritt told deputies he was walking his dog on the grass next to the golf course when Levine rode up in his golf cart and … began causing a verbal altercation with him due to having his dog on the golf course … He then began shooting at him while Merritt was running away.

Levine chased Merritt around a tree while continuing to shoot—Merritt said he shot about five rounds at him, according to the report and witnesses … he felt that Levine was trying to kill him.”
Whaaaaaat?...

According to witnesses, who called the police as they watched the altercation unfold, the semi-automatic handgun police found in Levine’s front left pocket a short while later wasn’t enough, however:

“Witnesses told deputies they saw Levine kick Merritt in the head, go back to his cart and get a club and begin beating Merrit with the club while holding the gun in his left hand. Deputies said they found shell casings on the ground and two golf clubs with what appeared to be blood on them.

There is more to the tory. Did the dog crap on the course? Did the victim say, "Yeah, well shoot me for walking my dog?" So many questions.

I love golf. Love to play but I have met the biggest pricks I’ve ever known at golf courses.

If you think Robert Levine is a "Florida" man, I don't know what to tell you.

Levine told Merritt he could not play through. Not guilty.
