Payson • Police say a 61-year-old Utah man is accused of stabbing another man for golfing too slowly.
KUTV reports that the man and his wife were golfing Saturday night when they got into an argument on the course with other players.
Payson police said the couple thought the group was going too slowly and wanted to play ahead of them.
The man reportedly used a pocket knife to stab another man and was wrestled to the ground by another golfer after the couple encountered the group again near the ninth hole.
The victim had a small cut and was taken to a hospital for the nonlife-threatening injury.
The suspect was booked into Utah County Jail on suspicion aggravated assault charges.
He couldn't be reached for comment.
It's unclear if he has an attorney.
