RENO, Nev. (AP) - A 76-year-old former candidate for mayor in Reno potentially faces up to 5.5 years in prison after pleading guilty to hitting a man on the head with a golf club and carrying a concealed weapon without a permit.

Larry Pizorno originally was charged with a felony charge of battery with a deadly weapon after he allegedly told police he beat the man in February because he ran over Pizorno’s dog with a bicycle.

The Reno Gazette-Journal reported Tuesday (https://tinyurl.com/qgbkoqe) he pleaded guilty Sept. 16 to a misdemeanor battery charge and the felony weapons charge.

Pizorno, who goes by the nickname “Wolf Man” because he wears a wolf skin to Nevada athletic events, also could face more than $10,000 in fines at his sentencing set for Nov. 18 in Washoe District Court.
