    CHINO, Calif. (AP) - An Orange County sheriff's reserve deputy was ordered to trial for allegedly pulling a gun on two slow-playing golfers and threatening them at Los Serranos Golf & Country Club.

    Witnesses said Raymond Yi, 44, pointed a gun at the golfers and flashed his sheriff's badge during the July incident.

    "When I saw him cock his gun, something fell out and my mouth dropped. I couldn't believe this was happening on a golf course," said golfer Marcelo Bautista, 35, a Los Angeles teacher who was playing on the course with his uncle Gustavo Resendiz.

    Bautista said Yi had hit two balls toward the men and at the 14th hole Bautista hit Yi's ball back toward him. According to Bautista, Yi confronted him, left the fairway and returned with a badge and pointed a gun to his head.

    Bautista and Resendez continued playing but Yi followed them, pushed Resendiz and then cocked his gun.

    "I really thought I was gonna be killed right then and there," said Resendiz, 61.

    At the end of Monday's preliminary hearing, Superior Court Judge Raymond Youngquist said there was enough evidence to order trial. Yi is charged with two counts of assault with a firearm and two counts of making criminal threats. He will be arraigned Nov. 1.

    There are times if I was on his jury I could call his actions justified. LOL

    I sure have felt like doing that before. Slow golf is like bad manners, there just isn't an excuse to justify it.

    Why anyone would be in a hurry to finish a game where the object is to drive around in an electric car, drinking and hitting a little white ball is beyond me.

    What's the hurry? If you are in that big of a hurry, take up a quicker sport.

    Slow is relative. They may have been playing just as quickly as you.

    Reserve deputy.

    Which is all the wonder of being a cop, except you dont get paid. Kinda have to wonder about the personality type that would be strongly attracted to a job like that.

    That this took place in California has nothing to do with things, but once again it only takes mention of the state to bring out the peanut gallery.

    As to why someone would want the job, reserve deputies are like volunteer firemen. A lot of folks volunteer to serve their community.

    It is however, like a lot of things, an opportunity for cronyism. Raymond Yi was the martial arts instructor for the Sheriff which should make the trial and the results interesting.

    Two guys were playing golf, when they encountered a slower couple of women playing. The one guy told his partner to go up, and ask if they could play thru. He came back, stating that he couldn't ask them, because it was his wife, and mistress playing. The second guy went up, and came back, replying, "Small world isn't it?":)

    I always knew Golf was dangerous.
    Hence the observation:

    The guy was wound entirely too tight to play a decent round of golf. He needs to get a fine cigar and a splash of single malt and just mellow out.

    That said, I hope his handler give him the corncob and kerosene treatment. Such behavior should be forever categorized as "unacceptable."

    I never understood the game of gold personaly.

    You hit a ball....you drive/walk, you hit the ball agian. And whoever hit's the ball less wins...hey whatever flaots your boat.

    But yeah this is dumb. Though I did see a guy whack someone on the mini golf course with his club when I was a kid.

    Actually there may be a use for golf. Hitting a golfball in the air would be a lot more interesting and challenging then a clay :evil:

    "Four!"
    BANG!
    "Tiger *** was that!"

    You see? Golf causes violence! If that golf course hadn't been there, that guy wouldn't have threatened those people.

    Exactly.

    To a last one - the people I know who play golf do so to "relax".

    So relax already.

    Nevada, escaped from the PDRK via Idaho.
    When I left law enforcement in the PDRK six years ago, there were three levels of reserve peace officers in the state.

    Level I reserves had the most training, and had peace officer powers of arrest while on duty. Level I reserves could work solo. If they had the equivalent of a basic police academy training, they could be designated by their employing government body to have 24 hour peace officer status.

    Level II reserves had less training, and had peace officer powers of arrest while on duty. Level II reserves had to work under the immediate supervision of an officer who had completed the basic police academy.

    Level III reserves had the least amount of training. They did not have peace officer powers of arrest while on duty. Level III reserves were sometimes called 'technical' reserves, as they had specialized skills that were useful to law enforcement. The Los Angeles County Sheriff was known for making outstanding training films because they had a large number of Level III reserves whose regular vocations were in the Hollywood & television film making industry.

    PDRK law requires reserve peace officers to have a CCW permit to carry a firearm concealed when not on duty.

    The Los Angeles County Sheriff created a PR nightmare for himself when he suggested creating a special reserve force of celebrities and political heavyweights to bolster the image of the department. The 'reward' for volunteering their time would be a CCW permit. The Sheriff was attacked from all sides for his proposal. He quickly abandoned the idea.

    "Sheriff's dept. MARTIAL ARTS instructor?" And he went for a gun??? Seems like a better course of action for him would have been to sucker the guy into taking a swing at him. Guess maybe it was one of those "Those that can, do--those that can't, teach."

    Good plan! I'll enjoy a good cee-gar from my stash, but go with "The Famous Grouse" rather than a single!:O)

    Take Care

    If the deputy pulled that trick on my golf course I can imagine a couple of old timers pulling Garands out of their golf bags and teaching him some manners.
