BUNNELL, Fla. – A 19-year-old Bunnell man was arrested Monday night after a fight over a tax refund, deputies said.

Steve Boursiquot is accused of shooting at Napoleon Lorick, 33, after a confrontation over a $2,832 tax refund that is owed to Boursiquot’s girlfriend. 

Just before 8 p.m. Monday, deputies were called to Espanola Road and County Road 205 where several women said several people beat Lorick and a shot was fired at him. Lorick told deputies he was punched by both Boursiquot and another man. 

As Lorick got up and started to run, he looked back and saw Boursiquot reach down by his shoe and remove a revolver. 

Lorick told deputies he heard at least one gunshot and heard a whizzing sound fly by him. 

Deputies said Lorick had visible injuries to his lower back, a swollen ankle and complained of an injured hand as a result of the fight. 

Boursiquot was arrested and taken to the Flagler County jail, where he was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and battery. He remains in jail on bail of $6,000. 

Lorick was arrested on an unrelated warrant from Volusia County for possession of marijuana.
