Argument over porn ended not in hugs and kisses but rather with a golf club and beating

Man claims woman roommate hit him

A tiff over porn in Vero Beach ended not in hugs and kisses but rather with a golf club and a beat down, according to a recently released Indian River County Sheriff's Office report.

A 23-year-old man on Sept. 19 told deputies his "female roommate" whacked him with a golf club, which the roommate apparently identified as a six iron.

"He said that they got into an argument over porn," the report states. "She told him to get away from her and he did not. She then grabbed a golf club and started beating him with it."

The 24-year-old woman appeared to be teed off and said she was leaving and not coming back.

"She told me she used a six iron on him," a report states.

Golfers typically use a six iron for an approach shot, though it can be used to tee off on a par 3.

In 1971, Alan Shepard, commander of Apollo 14, used a six-iron head attached to a utility tool to hit a couple of golf balls on the surface of the moon.

Shepard's famous lunar golf incident came about 16 years before the birth of the woman in the apparent Vero porn golf club beating brouhaha.

A six iron is not to be confused with a six pack of soda, a six shot handgun, Six Flags amusement park, six degrees of separation, a sixth sense or a sick sense of humor.

A deputy noted "several large contusions" on the man's arms, face and back.

The man apparently gave the woman a mulligan, not wanting her to be arrested.
