Florida judge denies golfer's 'stand your ground' claim

A central Florida judge has denied a "stand your ground" claim by a golfer who is accused of beating a man who claimed a golf ball had hit his pickup truck.

Circuit Judge R. Michael Hutcheson on Wednesday determined that 44-year-old David James Barror's "piston-like punching" of 64-year-old Richard Fillingame last summer was an overreaction.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports Fillingame confronted Barror while he was golfing last summer. No damage was found on the truck. The incident led to a confrontation that left the older man with several broken bones. Barror was charged with aggravated battery punishable by up to 15 years in prison.

The judge said neither man is a bad person and suggested the attorneys get together and reach a compromise.
