A man selling flying golf discs — and possibly marijuana — was arrested Tuesday at a Troy park after police said they found he had drugs and a weighing scale with him.



Officers were sent to Firefighters Park, located at 1810 W. Square Lake Road, after a caller told officials a man was selling the discs and drugs out of the back of his car.



When police arrived and talked to the man — a 53-year-old Bloomfield Township resident — he confirmed that he was selling the flying golf discs.



After investigating and discovering the man had an outstanding warrant from the Oakland County Friend of the Court, police and a tracking dog searched around his vehicle.



Marijuana, narcotic paraphernalia, cash and a small scale were found inside, officials said. The Bloomfield Township man was arrested for possession of a controlled substance in a park, a felony.

I didn't know that was a felony! Lets all keep our grass off the course. Sad to see an article like this written as it puts a black eye on a great course. And I'm sure the Troy Police are going to keep a better eye on Firefighters and Raintree as well.

i am very disappointed at the person who called, whoever they may be. It was out of jealousy and pure stupidity to call on the person, as stated before .... the person is an ambassador to our sport and the conclusion of the situation was a personal choice that unfortunately cost this awesome person.
