An 18-year-old Florida teen is facing charges for terrorizing a 9-year-old girl.

Sheriff Chris Nocco said video shows Drew Bretnall and another teenager chasing the 9-year-old child as she walked home from school.

"They scared this little girl to death. She thought there was clear and imminent danger to herself. They scared her to death," said the sheriff in a press conference Thursday.
