Golfer John Daly’s ex-wife, Sherrie Miller is all over the news again. Miller, who was wanted for extortion and harassment, has been arrested. She was arrested and charged with extortion for harassing a woman, whose nude photos she found on her boyfriend’s phone.

Miller, who was married to American professional golfer on the PGA Tour from 2001 to 2010, allegedly posted a few nude pictures of the woman, whose name has not been revealed, on her Facebook account and even sent screenshots of them via text messages.

Daly’s former wife first got hold of the explicit pictures of the woman from her beau’s phone, which was later used to threaten her. The woman, who is said to be a middle school teacher, started receiving threats from Miller. Miller told her that she would post the nude snaps on social media site. So, the victim sought help and protection from authorities after Miller texted her screen shots from her Facebook page with her naked pictures. What she had believed to be empty threats turned out to be true; Miller did post her photos online. According to the authorities, they recovered the photos on the social media site before it was too late.

Miller turned herself in to the police department after ten days of the incident. After being charged, she had to pay $3,000 bond to set free.

According to several media reports, Miller had filed an order of protection against the woman previously.

This is one of the umpteenth times, the former wife of PGA Open Championship has gotten herself into legal trouble.

Daly and Miller, who tied the knot on July 29, 2001, got into a nasty fight in 2007 at a restaurant in Memphis, Tennessee, during Daly’s tour for the Stanford St. Jude Championship. The golfer also claimed to have been attacked by his wife with a knife that very night. He appeared with cuts and bruises all over his faces. When Daly called the authority, Miller ran away with their children.

She was previously sent to prison on charges of contempt of court during a child custody battle with Daly. She was charged with a conspiracy related to drug and gambling operation and was sentenced to five months in Federal prison in 2006. She was sentenced to 90 days in prison last year as her son was found absent from his school on 52 separate occasions. The punishment was deducted and she did 30 days community service.

Miller is also currently in a feud with Daly’s fiancee, Anna Cladakis. She has sued Anna with a claim that Anna had sexual relation with her ex-husband before their separation. She blamed Cladakis for their divorce as well.

Daly, aged 49, has had enough trouble with his former wife and it seems he does not want to get into any legal situation with her. This might be why the athlete, with an estimated net worth of $20 million, has not spoken a word about Miller’s disgraceful act.
