Australian golfer charged with drunk driving
April 20, 2012

Authorities say Australian pro golfer Matthew Giles has been arrested on suspicion of drunken driving after he crashed his car into a home southeast of Phoenix.

A Gilbert police report says Giles was ''travelling at a very high rate of speed and tried to make a left turn'' when he lost control of his car and it crashed into a single-family home Monday night.

Police say the accident ruptured a natural gas line, but there were no reported injuries.

They say Giles was given sobriety tests at the crash scene and results are expected in about two weeks.

Giles finished 66th in the Nationwide Tour's TPC Stonebrae Championship in California the day before the crash.

The 22-year-old Giles is a native of Sydney, but the former University of Southern California star lives in the Phoenix suburb of Scottsdale.
