The parents of two boys involved in violent clashes at a golf course say their sons did not deserve the beatings they received.Hmm, golfers.
Pals Jordan Martindale and Charlie Roberts were playing in the woods behind the private Sundridge Park Golf Club in Garden Road, Bromley, when their football went over the fence.
After going on to the course to retrieve it, the pair say they were attacked and rang home to tell their parents what had happened.
About the only thing I know about them is that they prefer a good walk spoiled. Who knew they were the commuter belt equivalent of Hell’s Angels in reality, without all that need for black leather and the smell of motor oil?
Ms Millett claimed: “The golfers were using their clubs as weapons.Me neither. I suspect there’s more to it than the newspapers are saying, though.
“I just do not understand why it happened. ”
Well, either that, or someone really needs to keep an eye on that Tiger Woods, in case he snaps one day and starts laying into the crowd with a 9 iron…
Jordan’s father Terence, of Hillcrest Road, Plaistow, is planning to put in an official complaint about the way the incident was handled by the police.Well, yes. That’s what police do, arrest people. That ‘caring for injured people’ stuff is done by the ambulance staff.
The 39-year-old claims his ex-partner had to take their son to hospital herself because the police did not call an ambulance.
He also claims a golfer admitted assaulting his son but was made to sit in a golf buggy without handcuffs on rather than being arrested immediately.
The data engineer also claims the police cared more about arresting people for affray and other minor offences than caring for the injured teenagers.
But you’d think the police would come down on grown men who beat innocent kiddiewinks with metal implements for no apparent reason a little harder, wouldn’t you?
Curiouser and curiouser…
Update: The 'Telegraph' has quite a different version of this little tale, to say the least!
