Golfer Ian Poulter calls in cops over Twitter 'death threats'

July 2, 2011 - London

Golfer Ian Poulter has called in the cops after receiving a flurry of abusive messages and death threats on Twitter.

An anonymous writer posted the threatening messages to the 35-year-old, under the name @deathtoPoulter.

"Your dead at the open," the Daily Star quoted the unknown person as tweeting.

But the threat did not faze Poulter, who wrote back and told the tweeter to grow up.

"How pathetic. @deathtopoulter - more work for the police. Grow up," Poulter replied.
