US OPEN vandalism

(Tulsa-AP) -- The golf course at Southern Hills Country Club is in great shape this week as it hosts the 101st U-S Open.

But that wasn't the case two years ago when the course was sprayed with a substance that killed grass and left behind impressions of profanity.

On Saturday, Arkansas authorities arrested the man believed to have caused the damage. Richard William Jones is being held in the Carroll County, Arkansas, jail.

Tulsa County authorities say they plan to bring Jones to Oklahoma to face charges.

Jones was recently employed at an Arkansas golf course. He worked on the grounds crew at Southern Hills when the vandalism occurred.
