BOCA RATON, FL ( — A Palm Beach County Sheriff's Deputy was apparently screamed at by two people — identified as “Mr. and Mrs. Goldberg” who were irate that a man identified as 78-year-old David Schumaker parked his scooter in the handicapped space at the Starbucks at 22107 Powerline Road in Boca.

According to a police report, an “irate” Mr. Goldberg approached Deputy Estroff because a scooter was parked in a way that made it difficult for Mrs. Goldberg to get into her car with a cane.

Deputy Estroff offered to help Mrs. Goldberg, but Mr. Goldberg was having none of it.

He “demanded” that the Deputy find Mr. Schumaker and write a ticket, which he did, to the tune of $336.

But that wasn't enough.

The Goldbergs and Mr. Schumaker then walked into Starbucks where, according to the report, “Mr. Goldberg jumped up into Schumaker's face and Schumaker pushed him away. He was then hit on the leg with a cane by Mrs. Goldberg.”

Witnesses say the Goldbergs were out of control and caused the problems.

Mr. Schumaker declined to prosecute.

According to the deputy's report: “The Goldbergs left stating that I was a Nazi Gestapo and they wanted my name.”
