DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The couple involved in a flying mango incident in the Delray Beach community of Seven Bridges earlier this month is a couple no more.
Kevin and Cynthia Marks are filing for divorce, according to public records filed with the Palm Beach County Clerk of Courts.
The filing comes as criminal charges remain against Kevin Marks who allegedly became enraged after his wife threw two mangos from a tree that he had been “nurturing.”
This is the narrative of the police report, from our original reporting on June 3rd:
“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.”
The dissolution filing was made several days after the alleged incident.
One of the parties involved posted to social media recently asking for video of the flying mango incident from any neighbor who may have recorded the event.
