BOCA RATON, FL ( — Arthur Ziskend, an 83 year old Boca Raton resident, is in the Palm Beach County Jail tonight charged with “battery — commit domestic battery by strangulation.”

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office took Ziskend into custody late Friday. He has been in the jail ever since.

Ziskend, of Willow Wood Drive, will have his “First Appearance” in court on Monday. He has nothing more than a moving violation — for which he was found guilty — on his record in Palm Beach County.

We expect more information when the court opens on Monday.
