update_graphic_red_bar1:45 PM PT -- Sherrie is now being held without bail, and the D.A's Office says she'll be behind bars for several months. We're told she failed to appear for a prior family court case, so a judge remanded her bail until her first hearing in that case ... which is November 4th.
update_grey_gray_barSmile, Sherrie Daly ... you've just been tossed behind bars!!!

Golfer John Daly's ex-wife was jailed Friday in Memphis, TN because their teenage son missed too much school without an excuse.

The Shelby County DA tells TMZ Sports the boy missed more than 15 days, without an excuse, during two separate periods: August 2012 - February 2013 and August 2013 - February 2014.

Daly was booked on multiple charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, a misdemeanor. She will go before a judge on Monday and could get sentenced to almost a year behind bars.

A spokesperson for the Shelby County DA tells TMZ Sports, "[Daly is] the poster child for truancy because of her notoriety."

This lady is not going to be smiling when he comes for the kid and she pay him support. The court will have to be blind to think that's good parenting.

"15 days during TWO separate periods". Seems excessive.
I cut school for a lot more than 15 days a semester.
But that was in the 80's.

John Daly= the Chris Farley of golf. And yet even with his clown outfits, red face from drinking all day and dangling cigarette hes still not as embarrassing a human being as Tiger Woods.

Good thing that cops are spending time arresting people for such bad things instead of using that time for finding, gosh, I don't know, rapists and murderers and child molesters. Fill the jails with people who don't make their kids go to school. This is one of the dumbest arrests I've read of.

TMZ implies that this is John Daly's child, but it isn't at all. His kids are with him and are schooled properly. This is a kid she had from another relationship and has nothing to do with the pro golfer . TMZ is brutal... What a joke!

Interesting. She could get a year in jail for something her kid did. And to think we have criminals released from jail who have done much, much worse. What in the hell has this country come to????

Would bang that MILF.

If that's the case, 90% of Ferguson MO's parents should be tossed in jail.
