Oct. 22, 1983: President Reagan and a gate-crasher at Augusta National
Charles Harris, of Columbia County, crashed his pickup truck through the gates of Augusta National Golf Club while President Ronald Reagan, Secretary of State George Schultz and Treasury Secretary Donald Regan were playing golf.
Harris wrecked the truck, jumped out and began waving a pistol before taking several hostages and holding them in the club's pro shop while demanding to speak with the president.
It was reported that Reagan twice telephoned Harris from the 16th hole, but Harris disconnected the line both times.
The incident ended without injuries when Harris surrendered two hours later. On that same day, 283 U.S. Marines were killed by a car bomb in Beirut, Lebanon.
