Old guys beat kid with golf ball retrievers for blowing air horn — now with video

Mar 8, 2012, 6:42 PM EDT


Last week we told you the highly amusing very serious story of Ronald E. Richardson and Donald E. Nieto, both 71 (pictured), who administered a golf course beatdown on a young punk unfortunate minor with aluminum golf ball retrievers. One of the kid’s friends recorded the incident on video, and now via, we can show it to you.

The boys hid just outside the course near the ninth hole and waited until just the right time to set off an air horn. Richardson and Nieto didn’t think the joke was funny and chased the boys away, but one returned to get a jacket he had left behind. Even though he was behind a fence, the geezer golfers went after him with several long aluminum golf ball retrievers. As you can see in the video below they whacked a kid identified as Cody numerous times.

Both men have been arrested and face child abuse charges. No word if the teens will be charged with anything.


The most amusing part of the video is how Cody continues to blow the air horn as he’s being pummeled. Also how his friend totally bails and runs away … but not after getting the precious footage. From the YouTube description:

Patrick, Cody, and Franklin messing with golfers with airhorns at shalimar point….it got outta hand. We were not on golf course property so we didnt think anything bad could happen to us, i guess that wasn’t true…..yeah it was a stupid prank and we should’ve thought more about it before we did it, but beating cody with golfball retrievers hard enough to break them wasnt right.

    “Those Punks” are the true words! I guess the the older gentlemen would have been in more trouble if they used their Irons. They should have ignored them while at the same time as calling the police and having those PUNKS and PRANKSTERS with no respect for anyone but themselves, go to “Juvie”

    everyone who says this isnt funny needs a reality check. its a classic prank. a prank that does not intend to harm or injure anybody. of course, its messed up and annoying but hey, thats what pranks are all about. before you go yelling at these “punks” with “no respect”, why dont you take a moment to recall what dumb stuff you did as a teenager that, at the time, you thought was hilarious. i always get a kick out of old men who can’t stand teenagers when they themselves (or i’m sure at least some people they hung around with) were once those same dumb disrespectful teenagers.

    just a simple, harmless and funny prank.

      That may be true, but even back when these old men were teenagers doing pranks, there were old men beating the crap out of them due to the annoyance, embarrassment, or for whatever other reason.

      Tradition is a two-way street.

    Yeah, I love a good prank, giving them and getting them, but some folks don’t have a sense of humor and if you can’t administer an ass-whipping then you might want to rethink your choice of entertainment.

    Oh, and what do you suppose Bush and Cheney did for eight years?
    Forget the lib/con model, they’re all morally bankrupt.

    I thought so. Dumb ass reply to whatever article is was, I’m sure.
