Palm Beach Gardens, FL (November 16, 2018) – One man was arrested on battery charges after he struck another person on Dania Drive in Palm Beach Gardens, which is in close proximity to the Fort Lauderdale area.
A man came home and found his roommate and another friend sitting outside talking and said hello to them. He found beer in the refrigerator and confronted his roommate, telling him that he didn’t want it in the house.
The roommate swore at the man, which prompted him to go into his room, where the roommate confronted him. The man told his roommate that if he didn’t step back, he would hurt him. The roommate didn’t move and so the man punched him in the ear.
The blow was so forceful that it required multiple stitches. Police made an arrest.
