A Florida man and his son are wanted for beating a man unconscious at a wedding reception this weekend, authorities said.
Joel O’Grady, 38, and his son Julian Falkinburg, 21, both of Sanford, are wanted for aggravated assault in connection with a fight at the Lake Helen rally, Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood.
“This must be our first father and son SCUMBAG OF THE WEEK post but they deserved it,” Chitwood wrote on social media. “Not just kicking a man when he’s down – but when he’s unconscious.”
Authorities said the couple beat Tyler Kaltenbach. The motive for the attack has not been disclosed.

Someone called 911 and said they found him clinging to life in the field, but didn’t know who attacked him at the Granville Farms wedding venue, Fox Orlando reported.
“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,” Chitwood told the outlet. “Someone could have ended up with significant brain damage. We hear about these things all the time.”
A lawyer for Kaltenback’s family told the news channel that the 36-year-old will have to undergo reconstructive facial surgery.
“The dental work is going to be extensive. All of his upper teeth have been pulled out. A lot of his lower teeth,” attorney Sara Howeller said.

Authorities say O’Grady and Falkinburg both have long violent criminal histories.
“Now is the time for a father to show his son what it means to accept responsibility for his actions,” Chitwood said online. “Surrender and tell your side of the story.”
