Tigard corn hole tournament disrupted by angry business owner

KOIN 6 NEWS - Matthew Dolphin was arrested after driving a truck through a Tigard corn hole tournament on Saturday.A disgruntled business owner allegedly drove a pickup truck over platforms set up for an outdoor corn hole tournament in the parking lot outside JB O'Briens Pub in Tigard on Saturday morning.

Matthew Dolphin, 41, is charged with reckless driving and criminal mischief.

Police say Dolphin's business, the Oregon Music Academy, is next to the pub, which is located at 11555 S.W. Durham Rd. According to police, Dolphin was angry because the corn hole tournament appeared to be taking up parking spots.

Corn hole is a game played by tossing beanbags into holes cut out of wood platforms.

Witnesses told police that during the tournament, a Ford pickup drove past an area of parking spots that had been marked off with tape and flags. The vehicle then continued to be driven over several gaming platforms.

Several adults playing the game needed to move quickly out of the way. No one was injured during the incident.

The driver of the pickup then parked the truck atop several gaming platforms, left the vehicle and waited nearby.
