804.01.D. No rules may be stipulated which conflict with the PDGA Rules of Play, unless approved by the Tour Manager of the PDGA.
It sounds as if the best way to get things moving again would have been to DQ the player.
804.05.A. A player shall be disqualified by the director for meeting any of the necessary conditions of
disqualification as set forth in the rules, or for any of the following:
(1) Unsportsmanlike conduct, such as; loud cursing, throwing things in anger (other than discs
in play), or overt rudeness to anyone present.
Only those there can say whether or not the outburst warrented a suspension, but someone who was there described the tantrum as "epic".
