The father, Robert Matteuzzi, tracked down the man and then allegedly chucked back the Gatorade bottle, hitting him in the face. All three men reportedly got in a fight.

According to St Louis Post-Dispatch, the incident was captured on video by a bystander. The paper described what unfolded:

A bystander took video of the encounter and caught Robert Matteuzzi holding the victim down while his son hit the victim's head and face several times, [Kirkwood Police Officer Matthew] Waggoner wrote. The victim suffered cuts to his face, a "traumatic" eye injury and a broken finger tip.

The elder Matteuzzi and his 31-year-old son Angelo Matteuzzi are now facing third-degree assault charges.
