OGDEN, Utah -- A 52-year-old man accused of punching another man and hitting him with his car in a dispute over pew space in Utah has been ordered to spend 30 days in jail. 

 

The Salt Lake Tribune reports Wayne Dodge was sentenced Wednesday after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge.  

 

Deputies say the fight happened last June at a Mormon meetinghouse during a crowded service that included a baby blessing. 

 

Authorities say Dodge sat in a section that another family had saved in hopes of getting a good view of the baby blessing.
