BOCA RATON, FL ( — Boca Raton resident Matthew Edelson, whose LinkedIn profile suggests he’s a server at Rocco’s Tacos, is currently serving time in the Palm Beach County Jail. Edelson is charged with battery on a person 65 years of age or older, and criminal mischief with property damage valued at more than $1000.
