Boca Man Claims To Beat, Tie Up Juvenile

BOCA RATON, FL ( — If you think sending a text to a friend asking what to do next after you beat up — and tie up — a teenager is funny, you should meet Wayne Edward Crawley. The Boca Raton resident apparently sent such a text to a friend in Chicago. This generated a police response and, ultimately, a cocaine charge.

Sometimes the best writing comes from police, so enjoy this blotter entry:

W/M Wayne Edward Cralwey (AKA Antony Joseph Peluso) was arrested for possession of cocaine. We cam in contact with Crawley after he sent a prank text to a friend in Chicago asking for help after alleging he beat a female juvenile and now had her tied up while he figured out what to do.

Crawley, 42, was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail and later was released on $3,000 bond.
