Manager of Clint Eastwood's golf club arrested
CARMEL, Calif. (AP) -- Authorities say an employee of a Carmel-area golf club owned by Clint Eastwood has been arrested on suspicion of embezzling company funds.
Forty-eight-year-old Neil Bentley Morton of Salinas is the manager at the Tehama Golf Club.
The Monterey County Sheriff's Office says Morton was arrested Saturday afternoon on suspicion of forgery and the theft of $33,622.
The private, invitation-only, 18-hole golf course lies between Carmel Valley and the Monterey Peninsula.
Authorities say Morton was booked into Monterey County Jail Saturday. A security officer at the club said he could not comment on Sunday, and a message left for the business office was not immediately returned.
