A Twentynine Palms man was arrested early Saturday morning after police say he assaulted a friend with a key.

The victim told the cops that his pal Dane Tomasko, 25, came home about 1:30 a.m. and was allegedly pretty drunk, reports Z107.7.

Tomasko turned off the power to the house, according to the victim, then took out his key and scratched the victim’s chest with it during an argument.

Police were called and Tomasko was arrested for assault with a weapon.

He was booked at the Morongo Basin Jail, with his bail set at $50,000.
