Dog ball thrower cited in deadly-weapon charge

A California man has been arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon for allegedly hitting a woman on the head with a dog ball thrower.

David Cramer, 56, was booked into Placer County Jail on the assault charges after being arrested on Saturday. He was later given bail.

Auburn police said that they responded to a dog park on Auburn Ravine Road on Thursday to investigate a report that a man had struck woman after the two had a disagreement over how their dogs were interacting with each other.

Cramer was alleged to have struck the woman over the head with a plastic dog ball thrower, a device with an elongated handle used to fling a tennis ball long distances for games of fetch.
