            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Pottawattamie County, Eric J. Nelson, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Doyle, P.J., and Tabor and Schumacher, JJ.  Opinion by Doyle, P.J.  (3 pages)

            Thomas Stogdill challenges the sufficiency of the evidence supporting his conviction for assault while using or displaying a dangerous weapon.  OPINION HOLDS: Substantial evidence supports the finding that a thrown hammer meets the definition of a dangerous weapon under Iowa Code section 702.7 (2018) as an instrument used in a way that shows a person intends to inflict death or serious injury on another and which can inflict death when so used.
