A 15-year-old boy was arrested May 13 on charges of battery.
A man told deputies, according to an Okaloosa County Sheriff's arrest report, that he was walking home from the Fort Walton Beach Skating Center when he was stopped by the teen.
The boy asked if the man wanted to fight and the man told him no. The boy then began to punch the man on his arm and face.
The boy later told deputies he punched the man because he "mean mugged" him, which meant he stared at him.
