DETAIL OF INCIDENCE:
Two Florida men were arrested after allegedly beating up a man at a wedding reception on Sept. 3.
The incident happened in Volusia County, Florida, and officials say that Julian Falkinburg, 21, and Joel O’Grady, 38, allegedly beat up 36-year-old Tyler Kaltenbach, according to FOX 35.
The father and son were arrested on Sept. 9.
Deputies said the victim was struck in the head and face several times and continued to be kicked even after he fell unconscious. The victim was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.
“This isn’t like a punch. This is: the guy goes down, and then you stomp on him until he’s unconscious,” Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood said. “This could have easily been a murder.”
According to the victim’s attorney, Sara Howeller, the victim suffered damage to his face and nose. She said he also had an extensive dental injury and a concussion.
O’Grady posted a $100,000 bond, and Falkinburg posted a $50,000 bond.
As part of their conditions of release, they cannot have contact with Kaltenbach. Kaltenbach was allegedly clinging to life while on the ground at the wedding venue, according to a 911 call.
A Volusia County Sheriff’s Office press release states that both O’Grady and Falkinburg have “extensive violent criminal histories.” Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood said the incident could have resulted in a murder.
“Somebody could have ended up with significant brain damage. We hear about these things all the time,” Chitwood said.
According to an attorney, Kaltenbach will have a long road to recovery and requires facial reconstructive surgery.
