AU­tah 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 was sched­uled to make a court ap­pear­ance 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 Au­gust 30. The vic­tim told po­lice that 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.
