Police: Man stabbed with broken five iron on Oakland Co. golf course

OAKLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WJBK) -

Three guys showed up to play the WestWynd golf course on Adams Road in Oakland Township. The starter said he wanted to add a single golfer. Glenn Lott made the foursome and away they went.

The three friends playing with Lott made it to Hole 12, and after they putted out, one of the guys asked Lott for his score.

Undersheriff Mike McCabe said what happened next was terrifying. "He asked the gentleman what his score was on the previous hole, and he didn't answer him. So he asked him again and he refused to answer, and then he blew up on the gentleman, pulled out his Calloway five iron and proceeded to attack them."

The golfers reported that Lott went berserk, beating the guy who had asked for his score.

"Broke the club over his arm. Once the club broke, then he stabbed him in the arm with the shaft," McCabe said.

We're told the shocked golfers in the party stepped up to stop the assault.

"The two other gentlemen that were there broke the incident up, held the guy to the ground, told the victim to run away. He jumped on a golf cart, drove into the clubhouse," McCabe said.

But we're told they couldn't hold Lott down. He jumped in a golf cart and chased the wounded golfer to the clubhouse before finally leaving the course. Investigators say they found half of the bloody five iron in the grass on Hole 12.  The other half, they say, was in Lott's golf bag when they later found him at his home.

The victim required stitches to close open wounds on his arm.

59-year-old Glenn Lott has been arraigned on a very serious charge of felonious assault. He could spend up to four years in the state prison system if convicted.

Lott must give up any and all firearms that he owns. Bond was set at $100,000 cash, and the judge said the bond order includes banning Lott from all golf courses.
