A guy is walking on the golf cart path of the golf course. Another guy, Eddie Orobitg, knows that this is against the rules, so he takes it upon himself to be the enforcer of rules, and reads the offender the riot act. The offender tells this guy on the rules committee to fuck off. Well, our self appointed referee wasn’t having that, so he spit in the guys face and then beat him with a golf club. The victim wound up with broken ribs, a traumatic brain injury, a ripped earlobe, a broken jaw, and multiple lacerations. Under Florida law, this is serious bodily injury, making this attack a forcible felony. Aggravated battery.
Orobitg’s juvenile son said his father had asked the couple to get out of his way. The son said the man “got into his father’s face” and a verbal altercation broke out. He said his father spit in the man’s face. The other man spit back and pushing began. The son said that was when his father “accidentally” struck the man with his golf club.
The deputy who wrote the arrest report noted that Orobitg did not have any injuries other than a cut on his hand. There was blood on his clothes and golf clubs.
For breaking a golf rule. Accidentally? He struck him half a dozen times “on accident?” Orobitg is a dentist that practices in the area and obviously has some anger control issues.
