    A man was arrested Monday night after he reportedly struck a teen with his car and proceeded to punch him multiple times near a Chula Vista golf course after the teen and a friend supposedly threw food at his Mercedes-Benz, police said.

    Garrett Perry, 41, faces charges of felony child endangerment, assault with a deadly weapon, and robbery, according to the Chula Vista Police Department.

    On Monday, two boys, aged 14 and 15, allegedly threw food at Perry’s Mercedes-Benz at the East Lake Country Club at around 5:45 p.m.
