Dog park argument leads to arrest in Auburn

Published: Monday, Jan. 27, 2014 - 7:49 am

A man was 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 in Placer County Jail on the assault charges after being arrested Saturday. He later bailed out of jail.

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.

Police interviewed several witnesses before Cramer was arrested on Saturday.
