Andrew James Dudley, U.S. Open Drunken Bird Man, Is Actually Well-Liked

More popular than S.F. pigeons
After criticizing Andrew James Dudley's weird avian antics at Sunday's U.S. Open Championship golf tournament, we realized via reader comments that:

1. People don't give a shit about golf as compared to football;

2. People like the drunken Brit more than we thought.

In that case, Dudley's supporters will be glad to know that the 40-year-old was not booked into jail after security dragged him away, squawking, after he darted in front of TV cameras and did his audition for Johnny Carson during tournament winner Webb Simpson's interview.

According to Officer Albie Esparza, Dudley, who hails from Wallasey, United Kingdom, was only detained for public intoxication. No criminal charges were filed.

Dudley apparently is using his drunken fame to bolster his true passion: ending deforestation.

Anyway, if you care about this cause or you you are in need of another tchotchke from San Francisco, then here's a Jungle Bird shirt.
