5-Iron Attack On Fellow Golfer Nets Man Probation
PONTIAC (WWJ/AP) - An Oakland Township man has been ordered to spend one year on probation and pay nearly $1,300 in fines for an attack on a member of his golf club.
Oakland County Circuit Judge Rudy Nichols on Friday also ordered 60-year-old Glenn Lott to get anger management training, perform community service, and stay off metro-Detroit golf courses for the next year.
Lott pleaded no contest to aggravated assault in the June attack. Lott told the judge he remembers “going into a rage” but claimed the attack was prompted by prescription drugs.
According to police, Lott and the 65-year-old victim were playing as part of a foursome at the Westwynd Golf Course in Oakland Township when a dispute arose over a score on the 12th hole.
During the dispute, police said Lott broke a 5-iron over the victim’s arm. Lott also stabbed the man in the arm with the broken club’s jagged edge, police said.
The other two golfers held Lott down as the victim fled in a golf cart to the clubhouse.
“The suspect broke loose and then chased the victim in the second golf cart to the clubhouse, screaming at him the entire time that he was ‘going to get him,” according to the police report.
Deputies later arrested Lott at his home on a charge of felonious assault.
