FARGO -- One man was hospitalized and another is headed to criminal court after a friendly game of beer pong took a dark turn in Fargo last month, according to court documents filed in Cass County District Court.

Court documents say a dispute over cup placement in the drinking game turned violent, leaving one man with a broken eye socket, five stitches, and possibly requiring facial surgery.

Beer pong is a drinking game in which players attempt to throw or hit table tennis balls into cups of beer, and their opponents are required to drink the contents of any cup in which a ball lands.

A Fargo police officer responded to an assault report at Sanford Medical Center on Dec. 12 after Mason Haley showed up there with obvious facial injuries, court documents say.

A witness Jacob Lommen told the officer that he, Haley and another man, Cody William Dzielinski, were playing a game of beer pong at the party at 817 11th St. N., documents say.

Lommen said Dzielinski got upset with Haley over the placement of the beer cups. As the two were arguing, Dzielinski picked up a beer bottle and hit Mason in the face, knocking him to the ground before getting on top of him and punching him repeatedly, Lommen said.

Dzielinski is charged with Class C felony aggravated assault.
