Ten-pin bowlers brawl over etiquette

“Has the whole world gone crazy? Am I the only one around here who gives a shit about the rules? Mark it zero!”

ONLY in America? A dispute over ten pin bowling etiquette led one man to assault another with a 16-pound bowling ball, knocking out one of the man’s teeth. Ouch.

Police in Rocklin, California, said a 24-year-old man hit a man in the face with the ball during a melee involving six bowlers:

Two groups got into a fist fight after two bowlers approached the lane at the same time. They couldn’t agree which should go first.

Rocklin police Sgt. Terry Jewell said the victim was treated for facial injuries at a local hospital. Doctors reinserted the tooth, hoping it will reattach itself.
