NASHVILLE (CN) – Slow play on a public golf course led to violence, a man and wife say. Robert Voss claims that defendant Kendall Tucker, upset at the Vosses’ slow play, knocked him down and smashed him in the face with a golf club.
The Vosses also sued the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County, which owns McCabe Golf Course, where the assault allegedly occurred.
The Vosses say Tucker and his playing partner, defendant Kerry Frazier Sr., upset at the Vosses’ slow play, repeatedly hit golf balls at them. They say the golf course and Metro government refused to respond to their complaints, and that Tucker eventually punched Robert Voss in the face and knocked him down. Other golfers pulled Tucker off as he continued the assault, then Tucker smashed him in the face with a golf club, permanently injuring him, Voss says.
The Vosses demand punitive damages in Davidson County Court. They are represented by Jack Butler and A. Scott Derrick.
