SANTA ROSA BEACH, Fla. (WMBB) — Deputies with the Walton County Sheriff’s Office arrested a Mississippi man in the early morning of Aug. 1 for punching a 15-year-old multiple times in the face the night before.

The victim, Collin Untersee, told deputies that the perpetrator, Andrew Jonathon Harrell, 23, of Starkville, Miss., assaulted him because Untersee and his friends were riding their bikes too close to Harrell.
