A player was disqualified from a tournament for throwing a dart into a scorer’s leg, it has been claimed.
The player in question was taking part in the WDF Antwerp Darts Open in Belgium and was actually on his way to winning a match.
Former PDC Tour card holder Darren Johnson was at the tournament and was due to help out with scoring. He was due to oversee the next match on the stage, only to be told it wouldn’t be going ahead for the most bizarre reason. Johnson posted the following on social media:

“Darren you do not need to mark.
"Me: How come?
“The next opponent is disqualified.
“Me: What for?
“He threw 3 darts in the marker’s leg.”
A subsequent account suggested only one dart had hit the marker, who did not complain about the incident.
Player Brian Raman tweeted: “It was only one dart. He won the game taking out 58 in 2. He wanted to throw the dart on the floor because he was happy to win but it came in the marker’s leg.
“I was there, seen it, the marker didn’t put a complaint in but [the player] still got kicked out of the tournament.”

The incident left many fans wondering who the player in question was while one tweeted: “I can understand that someone is happy with a win but still throwing that last dart away without control isn't smart. But if the marker doesn't make a deal about it, [it] should not be a big problem.”
The tournament was won by Welshman Jamie Lewis, who beat Kay Smeets in the final.
