Talk about getting down and dirty — and in your face. September 11, 2012

Sheriff’s deputies say a Gainesville man smeared dirty underwear on another man’s face after an argument about rent.

Johnny Broestler, 46, was arrested and charged Saturday afternoon with battery, according to an Alachua County Sheriff’s Office arrest report.

Walter Liddel, the victim, and Broestler live on the same property but in different structures, according to the report.

Liddel, 60, called 911 to report that Broestler had entered his camper at 9428 N. County Road 226 around 4 p.m. and demanded money for the landlord. The two argued, the report said, and the altercation got physical when Broestler grabbed a dirty pair of underwear and smeared fecal matter on Liddel’s face.

Deputy Craig Smith responded and noticed Liddel had fecal matter on his neck and ear, and took Broestler to jail, where he remained Monday in lieu of a $5,000 bond.
