A father and son have been arrested by police in Florida after they brutally beat a man at a wedding reception in Daytona Beach last weekend.

Tyler Kaltenbach, 36, was left black and blue during the severe beating – and the impact was so intense he lost consciousness at the scene, according to the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office.

Joel O’Grady, 38, and Julian Falkinburg, 21, both of Sanford near Orlando, are accused of beating Kaltenbach in the parking lot of the Granville Farms wedding venue in Lake Helen.

The father-son duo – described as “scumbags” by a Sherriff – fled before being arrested for aggravated assault.

It is not yet clear what caused the altercation at the wedding reception.

His son, Julian Falkinburg, 21, was also charged with aggravated battery before posting $50,000 bond

The pair’s beatings were reportedly savage – with the pair stomping on him while he was unconscious and lying on the ground.

The couple were jailed in the Volusia County Branch Jail, and O’Grady was released after posting $100,000 bond.

Meanwhile, Falkinburg posted $50,000 bond and was released Saturday afternoon according to the sheriff’s office.

‘It’s not like a punch. It’s the guy who goes down and then you stomp on him until he passes out. It could easily have been murder,’ Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood told Fox 35.

“Someone could have ended up with significant brain damage. We hear about these things all the time.

“This must be our first father and son SCUMBAG OF THE WEEK message, but they deserved it.” Not just kicking a man when he’s down – but when he’s unconscious,’ Chitwood wrote in a Facebook post.

Rescuers reported how Kaltenbach was found on the ground clinging to life.

He will face a long road to recovery, including having to undergo reconstructive facial surgery after his cheekbone was broken.

“The dental work is going to be considerable. All of his upper teeth have been knocked out. Lots of his lower teeth,” said family attorney Sara Howelles.

Authorities say O’Grady and Falkinburg both have long violent criminal histories. The pair knew Kaltenbach, but it is unclear was driven into the attack.
