SALT LAKE CITY — A drinking game involving ping pong ended early Thursday with one man suffering critical injuries after his opponent, his roommate, allegedly assaulted him with a baseball bat.
About 2:30 a.m. police were called to a local hospital on a report of a 21-year-old man who was attacked with a bat. The investigation led officers to a house at 1963 S. 1200 East.
Detectives learned there had been a party at that location earlier in the evening, and two roommates were playing beer pong when they got into an argument. The argument got physical, said Salt Lake police detective Dennis McGowan, and the roommate went to his room to retrieve a bat, came back and hit the victim twice in the head and once in the abdomen.
Steven Skolsky, 21, was arrested and booked into the Salt Lake County Jail for investigation of aggravated assault.
