SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A Utah man has been charged with sexual assault and kidnapping after authorities say he hammered a tool resembling an ice pick through another man’s penis during an argument.

The 45-year-old Jason Dee Maughn is scheduled to make a court appearance Wednesday in Salt Lake City. Online court records don’t list an attorney.

Court documents show that Maughn is accused of putting a gun to the victim’s head and handcuffing him to a chair on Aug. 30. The victim told police he was given a choice of being killed in the desert or having a nail driven into his penis. He says he went to the hospital the next day for treatment after Maughn took the handcuffs off.

The charging document describes the case as domestic violence and says the men lived together, but doesn’t explain their exact relationship.

    Quinton Tarrantino could probably do this justice in a cinematic format. He would make the hammer sounds do all the work. No need for graphic presentation. Not trying to sound indifferent, callous, or insensitive to the ramifications of this morbid act of violence, but it curdles my blood imagining the horror of the victims experience Life is stranger than fiction. Never thought SG news has the potential to trigger nightmares.

      Yeah and it was Weinstein who funded Queebentino’s nonsense. I just watched H8ful 8 and Django recently – what a racist, violent, insanity that dwells in those peoples minds. YUK. So glad to see Hollywood elites… errr sex predators busted up one side and down the other. Today the news of Les Moonves just came out. Good GRIEF

    My first reaction was: whaaaaa?

    But then I think about it, and it was probably just a pair of gays playing some sort of twisted sex game.

      oh, a game that maybe got out of hand?

      • Carpe Diem December 5, 2018 at 12:13 pm

        Body modifiers might well do this for a new piece of body piercing. I think it’s not uncommon.
        Tied up to a chair? Well, ok then! Did not give consent!

    It is rare for a news article make me cringe, but as a guy, I’ll have to say I almost wanted to double-over in pain picturing what this must have felt like! Ouch!

    I can’t wait to hear “debragubler’s” reaction to THIS one *pops popcorn*

      debragubler only comes around when she’s a certain level of intoxicated.

  • ladybugavenger December 5, 2018 at 11:07 am

    Somebody cheated?

    • Carpe Diem December 5, 2018 at 12:11 pm

      I don’t think this was as fun as it first sounded.

  • ScanMeister December 5, 2018 at 12:09 pm

    Wow it has been 20 years since Lorena Bobbit sliced John Wayne Bobbit. Regarding this incidence I agree “Cheating” might be motive.

    • 42214 December 5, 2018 at 10:24 pm

      What did Jeffrey Dahmer say to Lorena Bobbit, “You going to eat that?”

  • KR567 December 6, 2018 at 12:33 am

    Wow ! I see a movie coming up !

  • Mike P December 6, 2018 at 1:28 am

    Headline said ice pick. Then we find out it was only a nail.
