DELRAY BEACH, FL ( (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — An argument over mangos in the West Delray Beach community of Seven Bridges led to the arrest of a homeowner.

Kevin Marks of the 16700 block of Picardy Way in Seven Bridges was jailed Wednesday on one count of domestic battery. Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Deputies were called to Marks’ home after he allegedly got into a fight — over mangos — with his wife.

From the police report, written by one of the responding deputies: “I responded to (the home) located in the Seven Bridges Delray Beach in reference to a domestic battery. Upon arrival, (the victim) stated the following: she and her husband Kevin Marks were in a verbal argument She followed him outside to the side of the house where she pulled two mangos off the tree that Kevin has been nurturing. (The victim) took the mangos and tossed them into the bushes. Kevin became irate and took both his hands and pushed (the victim) down to the ground next to the raised garden bed. (The victim) advised she had her coffee and phone in her hand when she was pushed and both went flying.”

The report continues: “Kevin stood by hovering over her yelling at her. (The victim) advised when she got up she picked her things up and Kevin grabbed her coffee cup. (The victim) could see Kevin was becoming more enraged, she began backing up towards the back yard. Kevin chased after her becoming face to face, he wrapped his arms around her shoulder/chest area and began to squeeze her tightly. (The victim) advised she was only able to bend her elbows so she reached up and scratched at his face and neck area where she could reach. Kevin released her and went to his truck and left for work.”

Police spoke with a young child who witnessed the event and “confirmed the battery that occurred on the side of the house.” Kevin Marks was arrested and “transported to Palm Beach County Jail without further incident.”

Marks was booked into jail at 10:53 a.m. on Wednesday. He remains in jail as of 5 p.m. Thursday, June 3rd. He has been ordered by a judge to stay away from the victim and the child witness.
