MIDLAND - Midland County deputies arrested a man who they say punched a kid.

According to the report, Ediberto Lopez got into an argument with his 16-year-old stepson.

He threw a chair in the house then challenged the teen and his younger brother to a fight.

The report stated that right when he stepped outside, the two kids tried to shut the door and lock it.

That's when Lopez punched the younger boy in the jaw.

The two kids were able to push Lopez off the porch that he was standing on following the punch.
