POLICE: Man Was Driving Passenger By Ex-Boyfriend’s Home
Town Of Palm Beach Remains Under COVID-19 Curfew
DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — A Delray Beach man was jailed Thursday for violating a COVID-19 curfew in the Town of Palm Beach.
It is the first curfew arrest that we have seen recorded in the Palm Beach County Jail records.
Ariel Gutierrez, according to the arrest report, was driving a passenger in the 2700 block of South Ocean Blvd. in Palm Beach around 1 a.m. Thursday. Police stopped Gutierrez who said he was just driving a passenger who requested to be in the area.
The Town of Palm Beach remains under a midnight to 6 a.m. curfew due to COVID-19. The curfew only permits medical and “town ID” holders to be on Palm Beach streets during the curfew hours.
Gutierrez was arrested and charged with “violation of an emergency order.” He was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail where he was released several hours later on his own recognizance. A court date is pending. It is unclear whether he was driving for a “ride share” service at the time of his arrest.
The passenger, incidentally, told police that she was “driving by her ex-boyfriend’s house due to being upset about the recent break-up.”
Gutierrez lists the 400 block fo SE 1st Avenue in Delray Beach as his home address.
