Overton goes overboard
By Torleif Sorenson on 12/10/14
PGA Tour player Jeff Overton is known among his fellow players as a fiery competitor, as well as a huge fan of Indiana University Hoosier basketball. On Tuesday evening at Madison Circular Square Garden in New York City, Overton was in attendance, watching a game between Indiana and the University of Louisville:

Shortly thereafter, Overton went overboard:

Minutes later, Overton tweeted to the rest of the world what it was that made him so angry:

Apparently, Overton later came to a more sensible place in his brain and deleted the tweet. But this is the digital age, so several enterprising people screen-capped the tweet for posterity.

Golf News Net reported the story and added the following detail:
Three years ago, Overton faced legal problems related to his behavior after an on-campus Hoosiers game. After the IU-Kentucky game in Bloomington on Dec. 14, 2011, Overton was arrested on three misdemeanor charges of public intoxication and disorderly conduct. Earlier in the day, Overton appeared at the game against Kentucky to present a $50,000 check to the university. Early the next morning, Overton was in the passenger seat of a limo, yelling at people outside the vehicle at 3 a.m. Bloomington police pulled the limo over. Overton, who police said he was "belligerent," refused to provide his identification or step out of the vehicle. Police extricated Overton from the car and arrested him. Overton felt he was mistreated by police.
Um... OK, that might explain what happened Tuesday evening.

Armchair psychologists and substance abuse counselors, it's your turn.
