BOCA RATON, FL ( — Marcus Boas of Hollywood, Florida, allegedly placed both hands around his pregnant wife’s neck, pushed her to the floor and struck her in the face with his fist at Treehouse (7200 N. Dixie) Bar in Boca Raton late Friday night.

According to a police report reviewed by, two bartenders witness the assault, and one of the bartenders “witnessed Boas strike (his wife) in the face approximately two more times with his fist.”

When police were called to the scene by bartenders, both Boas and his wife denied an altercation took place.

Wrote an officer in the report:

“I then met with Marcus Boas who advised that he and (his wife) got into an argument over relationship issues. Boas stated that the altercation never came physical and advised that he loved his wife and would never touch her. He further advised she was two weeks pregnant.”

It was unclear if the wife, pregnant, was drinking alcohol in the bar.

Police charged Marcus Boas with “aggravated battery on a pregnant person.” He was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail and ultimately released on his own recognizance.

Boas, 38, lists the 2000 block of Van Buren Street in Hollywood as his home address.
