(ONLINE ATHENS) — A naked man who Athens-Clarke police say assaulted his girlfriend in Athens this week told officers he was stripped of his clothing because he lost a game of beer pong.

Officers said they were called to an apartment at The Lodge of Athens on North Street about 1:20 a.m. Tuesday when a woman complained her roommate was assaulted by her boyfriend.

The first officer to arrive heard sounds of a struggle and a woman crying loudly in the apartment. After knocking on the door, the officer said a woman with a bloody lip answered.

The officer said he saw naked man in the living room, a milk jug with something in it on a table, along with several plastic cups. One of the cups had two ping pong balls in it.
