Man accused of aiming pistol at slower golfers

Posted: June 25, 2009 in Nitegator

It started with an argument about how slowly three men were playing golf at the Lions Municipal Golf Course on Enfield Road.

It ended with a 73-year-old man aiming a loaded pistol Monday at former Westlake High School football player Matt Nader in the golf course parking lot and claiming he was “morally obligated to destroy” him, according to court documents.

Edwin Dailey was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony, after an Austin city marshal pulled him over in his white Ford Focus, a few blocks from the course better known as “Muny.”

Dailey was released on $15,000 bail. He declined to comment when reached by phone Wednesday. Nader could not be reached for comment.

Nader, a former Westlake lineman, had received a football scholarship at the University of Texas before he collapsed on the sidelines from cardiac arrest during a 2006 high school game in College Station.

Nader’s life was saved using an automated external defibrillator, and doctors later learned that he had a heart condition that ended his football career.
