FORT MYERS, Fla.- A 21 year-old man is on trial for punching a woman during a haunted house event at Florida Gulf Coast University.

Prosecutors say Jerome Joseph ended up decking Lee County Sheriff Mike Scott's daughter.

Lindsay Scott was working as an actor for the haunted walk. She was dressed as a zombie scaring event goers.

But witnesses say Joseph told his friends, "What happens if I hit someone in there?"

Scott says he punched her in the face, leaving her with a bruise and mild concussion.

Joseph is charged with battery. The jury has not given a verdict yet.
