KEY LARGO, Fla. – A Sunrise man was arrested Saturday after he rammed his truck into a security guard's golf cart at a Key Largo campground, Monroe County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin said.

Christopher Soccol, 40, faces charges of aggravated battery and driving under the influence of alcohol.

Herrin said deputies were called to the Calusa Campground Resort & Marina. A security guard told deputies that he was investigating a report of a disturbance and was sitting in his golf cart when a man, later identified as Soccol, got into a pickup truck parked in front of the golf cart and backed into it.

Soccol pulled the truck forward, parked it, then got back into the truck and backed into the golf cart a second time, Herrin said.

When deputies arrived, they found an intoxicated Soccol, who refused to speak with them, Herrin said. Witnesses corroborated the security guard's story, and Soccol was taken into custody.
