Ski Rage: Man Punches Teen Girl In Face
VAIL, Colo. - A Georgia man who punched a 14-year-old girl in the face for running into his young son on the slopes in Colorado has been fined $500, ordered to attend anger management classes and told to make restitution.
The Vail Daily reported that 41-year-old Scott Filler admitted third-degree assault in relation to the December incident at Beaver Creek Ski Resort.
Police reports said Filler thought the teen was skiing carelessly when she bumped into his 4-year-old son.
Eagle County sheriff's deputies said that's when he jumped on the girl and hit her with his fist.
District Attorney Mark Hurlbert said Filler was sentenced to anger management classes and restitution, the amount of which would be determined by the girl.
Prosecutors also sought community service, but Hurlbert said the judge fined Filler $500 instead.
