Man Hit, Stabbed With Club After Golf Score Spat
OAKLAND TOWNSHIP (WWJ/AP) – A round of golf between acquaintances ended with one man stabbed in the arm on the 12th hole with a broken 5 iron and the other under arrest.
The Oakland County sheriff’s office says Friday that the pair was part of a foursome playing Thursday afternoon at the Westwynd Golf Course in Oakland Township, north of Detroit.
Officials say 59-year-old Glenn Steven Lott of Oakland Township broke his golf club over a 65-year-old West Bloomfield man’s arm during an argument over the score. He then stabbed the victim in the arm with the club.
The other two golfers held down the attacker as the victim fled in a golf cart to the clubhouse. Deputies later arrested Lott at his home on a charge of felonious assault.
Lott was arraigned Friday afternoon Judge Lisa Asadoorian at 52-3 District Court in Rochester Hills. She set bond at $100,000, no 10 percent allowed.
Judge Asadoorian also ruled that Lott would only be released on bond on the contitions that he turn in any firearms, have no contact with the victim, and not visit any golf course.
Lott will be back in court next Tuesday. He faces up to four years in prison if convicted.
