Former fire marshal pulls gun on man who stole clubs


People are attached to their golf clubs, we get it. But this retired fire marshal took things to another level when he spotted his stolen clubs in a Golf Galaxy parking lot last month in Tulsa.

Donald Acree's clubs were stolen from nearby LaFortune Park Golf Course. Later, while on a trip to the golf store, he came across a man carrying the same clubs.

As you can see in the video, 59-year-old Acree takes a very rational approach and does what any normal person would do: he pulls a handgun and points it at the man, accusing him of stealing his golf clubs.

Sarcasm aside, as you can see in the video below (Warning: NSFW language), the situation gets very real as Acree follows the unarmed man, Devon Scott Montgomery, 24, around the store’s parking lot, aiming the gun at his chest while shouting, “get on the ground.” Montgomery cautiously backs up, claiming he didn’t do anything while Acree continues to yell, even threatening to kill him. 

Bystanders urge the man to follow Acree's orders and he eventually lies on the ground where he is allegedly kicked in the head.

According to, Montgomery was later arrested and charged with grand larceny for stealing approximately $3,800 of Acree's golf equipment. He was released a few hours later on a $1,000 bond. He has since filed a complaint against Acree with the Tulsa Police Department.
