AUGUSTA, GA. April 10 2012 Authorities say a 40-year-old spectator at the Masters Tournament has been arrested after police say he tried to steal sand pebbles from a sand trap and then led security officers on a foot chase. Richmond County sheriff’s Capt. Scott Gay tells The Augusta Chronicle that Clayton Price Baker is accused of slipping under the ropes following the tournament and trying to put the sand in his cup. After a short foot chase by Augusta National Golf Club security and sheriff’s deputies, Baker was apprehended Sunday and charged with disorderly conduct. It was not known Monday whether Baker has an attorney. Gay said Baker, who is from Ohio, did not get any of the sand in his cup.
