Florida father and son ‘seriously’ beat man at wedding reception
Two Florida men were arrested after beating a man at a wedding reception on September 3.
The incident took place in Volusia County, Fla., and officials say Julian Falkinburg, 21, and Joel O’Grady, 38, allegedly beat up 36-year-old Tyler Kaltenbach, according to FOX 35.
Father and son were arrested on September 9th.
O’Grady posted a $100,000 bond and Falkinburg posted a $50,000 bond.
As part of their release conditions, they are not allowed to have any contact with Kaltenbach.
According to an emergency call, Kaltenbach was reportedly clinging to life at the wedding site.
A press release from the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office said that both O’Grady and Falkinburg have “extensive violent criminal histories.”
Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood said the incident could have resulted in a homicide.
“Someone could have ended up with significant brain damage. We hear about these things all the time,” Chitwood said.
According to a lawyer, Kaltenbach will have a long road to recovery and will need reconstructive facial surgery.
