Three Massachusetts men were arrested by Richmond Police for playing golf at Meadow Brook Golf Course in Rhode Island.
This arrest is due to Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo’s executive order, which mandates that all-out-state visitors coming to Rhode Island for non-work-related matter must self-quarantine for 14 days.
All Massachusetts golf courses are closed, per MA Governor Charlie Baker.
Gregory Corbett, 51, of Attleboro, Tyler Pietrzyk, 22, of Taunton, and Nye Cameron, 22, of Taunton, were charged with a misdemeanor.
They are scheduled to appear in court on May 14.
