The city prosecutor's office has filed misdemeanor assault charges against 25-year-old David Hulton for allegedly striking a bystander with a foam golf ball during a Seattle Urban Golf event in October.

Hulton has proclaimed his innocence and now, another man has admitted to being responsible for the assault.

Will, who is 30 and unemployed, admits to hitting a bystander with a golf ball at the Seattle Urban Golf event and says he doesn't understand why the case is going to court. "[I]t’s getting hit with a Nerf ball. I mean, maybe he got his cornea scratched or something. It was obviously not malicious."

Will says he didn't come forward at the scene of the October 18th incident because "there were two people already in police cars and the officers didn’t want to hear any more from anybody. I just kind of laid low and hung out with the crowd."

Urban golfers are apparently putting pressure on Will to come forward or help Hulton cover his court costs and Will says he's offered to provide assistance to Hulton. However, he says he isn't willing to turn himself in and take the blame. "I don’t see what the point of that would be really," Will says. "He shouldn’t get in trouble because he didn’t do it and why should I be dragged in to it? I’m not really in a financial position to afford an attorney either. Aside from the hassle, it doesn’t seem like it would be that big of a deal."

When asked how he feels about Hulton having to deal with court costs and a possible criminal record, Will wasn't exactly contrite.

"I don’t like it but on the other hand I gotta say I’m pretty sure he can beat it," Will says, laughing. "I obviously feel bad about it, I want to help him out, but I don’t want to take the rap. If I don’t come forward and he beats the charge then it ends. If I do come forward I’d just end up in court."

The city attorney's office was unavailable for comment.
