Lessons in Etiquette, Courtesy of the Rocklin AMF Lanes

Imagine it: you have your bowling ball in hand, you are all set to knock down all the pins, this will be a strike, you know it! Then, some rude, inconsiderate, obviously etiquettely-challenged bowler approaches his lane next to you at EXACTLY the same time. This is a clear violation of bowling etiquette, any fool knows that. So, what to do? You could a) Take the high road and nod for him to go first, b) Wait for him to nod for you to go first, c) Become insanely offended and ultimately strike him in the face with your bowling ball.

If you are stumped as to the correct answer, read below! Life is full of hard decisions.

Man loses tooth as bowlers brawl over etiquette

ROCKLIN, Calif. -Police said a dispute over bowling etiquette led one man to assault another with a 16-pound ball, knocking out one of the man's teeth. They said a 24-year-old man hit a man in the face with the bowling ball during a melee involving six bowlers at the Rocklin AMF Lanes. Two groups got into a fist fight about 12:40 a.m. Thursday after two bowlers approached the lane at the same time. They couldn't agree which should go first.
Rocklin police Sgt. Terry Jewell said the victim was treated for facial injuries at a local hospital. Doctors reinserted the tooth, hoping it will reattach itself.
The suspect was being held on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon in Placer County Jail.
