Australian Golfer Suspended For California Cornflakes
Cocaine and golf just seem like two things that don't go together, and I think Australian golfer Wayne Perske would agree, because he just landed an 18 month prison sentence and three year suspension by a Japanese court for being caught with blow.
Perske on Monday received a sentence of “one year and six months in prison, suspended for three years,” a Chiba District Court official said, adding that an amount of cocaine had also been confiscated.
Perske had admitted to having the drug, according to Japanese media.
The Mainichi daily on its website quoted judge Yasunobu Hosoya as saying in the ruling: “Professional sports players must tolerate the loneliness of being unable to see their families and the pressure of competing abroad.
Yeah, that's it. Cocaine is one of those drugs that reallllly helps with "loneliness" and "pressure." I hear all the time about my friends railing lines at their homes, alone, with nobody around to laugh at or first pump towards. Normally when people do coke, they just relax on a couch and NEVER go out searching for a party, or for more blow.
That's the case, Japan. Way to go.
