BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Elvis has entered the building.

Elvis Guzman, of the the 2200 block of SW 3rd Street in Miami is now the Palm Beach County Jail, facing charges of assault on a law enforcement officer, grand theft, identify theft, and passing a forged or counterfeit document. He was arrested by Boca Raton Police.

According to a police report obtained by BocaNewsNow.com, Guzman allegedly attempted to cash a forged check at the Fifth Third Bank branch at 120 East Palmetto Park Road. The face value of the check: $8900. A bank employee determined it was fraudulent and called police.

The responding officer, according to the report, attempted to calmly discuss the situation with Guzman, but Guzman became agitated. When the officer had one of Guzman’s hands in cuffs, Guzman allegedly used his other to rip the officer’s vest which also resulted in the officer’s two-way radio microphone cable being snapped from his walkie-talkie. Guzman then fled, only to be captured by another officer who placed him under arrest.

Elvis Guzman, who works construction, is now being held on $20,000 bond. He was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail Thursday at 8 p.m.
