According to a Richmond County sheriff’s incident report, Page Miriam Hall, 51, of Leigh Place Drive, entered Gate 6 off Berckmans Road in a Nissan Altima about 12:30 a.m. April 2.

Police said Hall disregarded Augusta National security officers’ verbal warnings to stop.

She drove onto the grass at the service entrance and continued driving recklessly on the property, speeding and striking signs.

Hall was taken into custody and charged with driving under the influence and criminal trespass. The incident was captured on surveillance video, the sheriff’s report said.

She just wanted to get a chance

to see Phil and Tiger. Her timing was off just a little.

You'd think that being 51,

she'd have learned the truth of Dichotomy's statement.

Some people stay dumb as stumps their entire lives. God have mercy on us all.

Riverman,

I thought that very thing myself. That one made national news, this one probably will too, since it's the Augusta National. Proof positive alcohol has no redeeming qualities. Echo the makes you stupid, and never makes you better looking comment.

I can just imagine her spinning donuts on the grass with the theme song from "The Dukes of Hazzard" blaring on the speakers...

Kinda sad....

With a quick Google search, she has been arrested 2X in the past year for alcohol related offenses. Ms. Hall obviously has a serious problem and needs some help.

This is a Late April Fools Joke.

Everybody knows there is No Crime in Augusta leading up to and for a few days after the Masters. Oh!, other than Ticket Scalping.

Well it might not make YOU better looking, but it sure does make most women better looking. Like the song said "I never went to bed with an ugly woman, but I sure woke up with a few."

She's lucky that she didn't

She's lucky that she didn't get onto the course. I believe that the sentence for that is capitol punishment.

Has anyone seen actually seen her since she did this? The picture looks suspicious to me.

I'm with you Rolling Eyes

She'll be lucky if she doesn't get 'the chair'. Trespassing at the Augusta National is tantamount to treason around here.
