OGDEN, Utah (AP) - A 52-year-old man accused of punching another man in a dispute over pew space in Plain City has been ordered to spend 30 days in jail.
The Salt Lake Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1rD1OLL ) Wayne Dodge was sentenced Wednesday after pleading guilty to one misdemeanor assault charge. He was also ordered to complete an anger management class and pay a fine.
Weber County deputies say the fight happened last June at a Mormon meetinghouse during a crowded service that included a baby blessing and a missionary farewell.
Authorities say Dodge sat in a section that another family had saved in hopes of getting a good view of the baby blessing.
Dodge is accused of punching the man after the service, and striking him with his vehicle in the parking lot.
