A week or so ago, a video had surfaced of an assault occurring on an Ontario golf course. The clip made waves in the golf community, but also in the hockey community for one unbelievable reason. The instigator and perpetrator of the assault is an ex-OHL player.

In the video, a man runs across the green of a golf course maniacally wielding his club, and forcefully strikes a man standing nearby with the club.

According to an official report from the Sault St. Marie Police Department, the assailant in the video is former OHLer Joel Sandie. Sandie played for the Kingston Frontenacs, Cornwall Royals, Sudbury Wolves, and the London Knights between 1990 and 1993.
Sandie never could successfully make the jump from junior to pro, and now Sandie has shifted his focus from hockey and has become a real estate agent, located in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario.
Sandie has been charged with assault with a weapon and has an upcoming court date as he faces the reality of having to deal with those criminal charges simply because he could not control himself. Those of us who play golf know that the sport can be frustrating at times. Most of us don't go around assaulting other golfers though. This was truly some reprehensible behaviour from the ex-OHL player.
