804.04- F for the "if you had marked your disc" comment from Tyler.
I found it by looking at the FAQ. You're right it is tough to find....
QA 44: Another Player Touched My Possibly OB Disc
Q:My throw landed next to an OB creek. It's hard to tell whether the disc is in the creek or not since the edge of the creek comes up into some mud and grass. Another player went up to my disc and pushed it down to see if there's water underneath. Is my disc now automatically in-bounds because another player touched it?
A:No. Note that the interference and position rules are written in terms of a disc being moved rather than merely touched. The other player did not change the location of your disc. In fact, a disc must sometimes be manipulated in order to determine whose it is. If you move your possibly OB disc, it is automatically OB. But there is no corresponding rule that makes it in-bounds if someone else moves it. If that happens, you restore your disc to its approximate position. Applicable Rules: 804.04 Out-of-Bounds; 804.03 Interference.
I cant remember the absolute specific ruling (i dont want to misquote anything) but Cass can if he gets on here in a bit. I think it was basically that i could have DQ'ed the guy and i could have played from my "original" lie, or where he found the Ape. Correct me if im wrong Cass.
