DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - 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.
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.
