Iowa City police charged a local man after he allegedly hit a person with a golf club after one of his PlayStation Portable games was stolen.

Cartis Lamonte Washington, 32, 1231 Sandusky Drive, was charged Tuesday with assault causing bodily injury.

According to a complaint, officers responded to a fight at 1233 Sandusky Drive, where Washington and another subject were outside. Washington allegedly hit the other person in the legs with a golf club, causing an abrasion and other marks on his right inner leg.

The complaint said Washington admitted to hitting the alleged victim in the leg with a golf club because he thought the person took two of his games.

Assault causing bodily injury is a serious misdemeanor, punishable by up to one year in jail and a maximum fine of $1,875.
