BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Leon Freimour, 60, of Wolverton B in Boca Raton (Century Village) remains in the Palm Beach County Jail after allegedly threatening a man with some type of baton in South County Regional Park. The victim pulled a gun on Freimour and has not been charged.  Freimour, according to a police report, was caught on tape hitting the alleged victim with a stick after engaging in some sort of verbal dispute.

According to the report, “(the victim) was at the park with two friends. Moments before the victim was struck, (his friend) took out her cell phone and began recording. After the viewing the video, I clearly saw Leon hit the victim in both hands with an orange stick used to throw a ball. The victim then removed his gun from a holster under his shirt and ordered Leon to back up. The victim stated, “I am in fear for my life, you said you were going to shoot me!”

Freimour is charged with “aggravated battery, person uses a deadly weapon.”

He is being held without bond.
