Colorado man charged with running down golfer with golf cart

A 57-year-old man accused of running down a golfer with a golf cart has been charged with assault.

Richard Ponds is accused of second-degree assault by Denver District Attorney Mitch Morrissey. 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, 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.
