A Los Angeles County sheriff's captain is under investigation for taking Frank Carrillo out to play a round of golf. Carillo is a former pro golfer, and while they were out he gave his guard some tips on reducing his handicap.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. This next story could be material for a movie. A pro golfer is in jail in southern California, but Frank Carrillo got out, temporarily, to play golf.

And he made quite a fashion statement moving from tee to green while wearing his yellow prison jumpsuit. You're listening to MORNING EDITION.
