Denver District Attorney Mitch Morrissey has filed assault charges against a 57-year-old man accused of running down a golfer with a golf cart.

Richard Ponds is accused of second-degree assault. There was no attorney listed for Ponds in court files.

Ponds is accused of running down the unidentified man on April 3 at Wellshire Golf Course after the two men got into an argument.

According to the Denver Post (http://tinyurl.com/zhpctss ), the victim told police he got into a dispute because the suspect refused to get off the golf course after he was finished.

Morrissey says Ponds ran the man down with a golf cart, causing injuries that required stitches.

Ponds is due back in court May 17.
