KEYSTONE HEIGHTS, Fla. – A 25-year-old man pushed a child onto an air conditioning unit and had to be stunned after resisting arrest, the Clay County Sheriff's Office said.

Kyle Fales was arrested Sunday on charges of child abuse, domestic battery, battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting an officer with violence and vandalism. 

Deputies said they responded just after 10:30 p.m. to a dispute between Fales and his girlfriend, who live together at a home in Keystone Heights. 

The girlfriend told deputies that Fales shoved her in the chest and then pushed a child off the porch, breaking the porch railing and causing the child to fall onto an AC unit. 

Deputies said Fales' girlfriend tried to pull him off the child, but he shoved her into a door.

As the two began to struggle, deputies said, the woman's aunt used a stun gun on Fales' back in attempt to break up the couple. 

When they arrived, deputies said they handcuffed Fales and put into a patrol car. But on the way to the jail, deputies said, he began kicking the back door.

According to the Sheriff's Office, a deputy pulled over and tried to stop Fales, who then kicked the deputy in the face before wrapping his legs around the deputy, squeezing him.

The deputy had to punch Fales in the face and use his Taser to stun Fales twice, investigators said. 

Fales was booked into the Clay County Jail on $110,000 bond.
