Daly's estranged wife accused of stealing his phone
OLIVE BRANCH, Miss. (AP) The estranged wife of John Daly was freed on bond Friday after being accused of stealing the pro golfer's cell phone from his tour bus, police said.
Olive Branch Police Maj. Mark Kimbell said Sherrie Daly, 32, had cooperated in an investigation that followed John Daly's complaint filed early June. He said she surrendered Friday when told there was a warrant for her arrest and was freed on $500 bond.
Olive Branch Municipal Court Judge James McGarrh signed the warrant this week accusing the Germantown, Tenn., resident of petit larceny.
Sherrie Daily faces an Oct. 9 court date on the charge.
Messages left Friday with two attorneys who have represented Sherrie Daly in the past were not immediately returned.
Kimbell said Friday that John Daly, who told police the couple was divorced, had called police about 2:20 a.m. on June 4 to complain that the cell phone had been stolen from a bus parked behind the John Daly Bar & Grill in Olive Branch.
"He believed the phone had come up missing sometime during the night after his ex-wife had left the bus," Kimbell said. He said John Daly had told investigators he believed Sherrie Daly took the phone.
