5-Iron Attack on Fellow Golfer Nets Man Probation

By  | 

PONTIAC, Mich. (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.

The Detroit News reports that Oakland County Circuit Judge Rudy Nichols also told 60-year-old Glenn Lott on Friday to get anger management training and perform community service.

Lott pleaded no contest to aggravated assault in the June attack. A 65-year-old man was hit across the arm with a 5-iron at the Westwynd Golf Course in Oakland Township, north of Detroit. The man also was stabbed in the arm with the broken club's jagged edge.

The attack followed a dispute over a golf score.

Lott told Nichols Friday that he remembers "going into a rage" at the time of the attack.
