Analyst's cart driver, trooper have run-in at Open

PINEHURST, N.C. (AP) — The man driving NBC Sports analyst Roger Maltbie's golf cart at the U.S. Open was taken into custody Saturday after a state trooper said the driver ignored instructions to stay put, then hit the officer with the cart.

North Carolina Highway Patrol spokeswoman Pam Walker says Tommy Lineberry was taken to the Moore County jail and charged.

Walker says the charge was not immediately available but adds that paperwork will be available Sunday.

An official at the jail says Lineberry was not in custody Saturday night and had no further details.

NBC Sports is aware of the incident but declined further comment.
