[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

RENO, Nev. >> A Nevada man has been arrested on suspicion of shooting and injuring a golfer after an errant ball broke a window at his home.

Authorities say 53-year-old Jeff Fleming exited his home along a Reno golf course with a shotgun after a ball hit the home late Thursday afternoon.

Fleming is accused of firing at a golfing twosome at the 16th hole, striking one of them. The golfer was released after treatment at a local hospital for minor injuries.

Police say the Lakeridge Golf Course had to be evacuated after the shooting, and the suspect drove to a local attorney’s office, where he surrendered without incident.

Fleming was booked at the Washoe County jail on charges of battery and assault with a deadly weapon. He was released after posting bail.
