Felony 2nd-degree Assault? There's an app for that.

A concert-goer at Darien Lake found out the hard way, when an iPhone-powered punch left him with a deep gash to his forehead.

The unidentified male victim was leaving from the Rascal Flatts concert August 12th. When he pulled his car up to the exit, a vehicle occupied by 33-year-old Carolyn Smith of Bergen pulled up at the same time. According to Sergeant Greg Walker, Carolyn Smith jumped out of her vehicle and stood in front of the victim's vehicle, in an attempt to cut him in line.

"The victim got out of his vehicle and bumped (Smith)," says Walker. "That's when she swung at him with her right hand...but she was holding an iPhone."

The phone sliced deep across the victim's forehead. He had to be transported to DeGraff Memorial Hospital in Tonawanda, where he received 7 stitches.

Deputies took statements from both parties at the time. Yesterday, Carolyn Smith was arrested and arraigned for 2nd-degree Assault, a felony. She's due in court at a later date.
