Straight outta kings point

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office says Levine allegedly hit a neighbor over the head with a pool stick while the two were playing pool in the Kings Point pool room. Levine, 59, was apparently outraged when his friend said that he didn’t want to play anymore.

From the PBSO responding deputy:

“I responded to the Kings Point clubhouse at 7000 W Atlantic Avenue in unincorporated Delay Beach to a report of an altercation between two males in the pool room of the clubhouse where one male was struck over the head with a pool stick cutting the top of his head. Upon arrival the victim was being treated by Palm Beach County Fire Rescue for a several inch long laceration to the top of his head and the broken pool stick was on a table. The victim stated that his friend and neighbor, Robert Levine, had gotten into a verbal argument because (the victim) did not want to play anymore with Robert. During the verbal argument Robert struck the victim over the head with the pool stick. Post Miranda Robert admitted that he struck his friend over the head with the pool stick. Based upon my investigation on scene I found probable cause exists to charge Robert Levine with Aggravated Battery with
a deadly weapon under FSS 784.045 (1a2).”

Robert Levine was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail early Saturday morning. He remained in jail until posting $1500 bond on Sunday evening.
