Bowling ball assault leads to arrest of Roseville man
March 19, 2009
ROCKLIN, Calif. ” Police in the Sacramento suburb of Rocklin say a dispute over bowling etiquette led one man to assault another with a 16-pound ball, knocking out one of the man’s teeth.
They say 24-year-old Ryan David of nearby Roseville hit the man in the face with the bowling ball during a melee involving six bowlers at the Rocklin AMF Lanes.
Two groups got into a fist fight about 12:40 a.m. Thursday after two bowlers approached the lane at the same time. They couldn’t agree which should go first.
Rocklin police Sgt. Terry Jewell says the victim was treated for facial injuries at a local hospital. Doctors reinserted the tooth, hoping it will reattach itself.
David is being held on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon in Placer County Jail.
