BROWARD COUNTY, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The husband of the woman suing the Seven Bridges Homeowners Association in a high profile federal lawsuit alleging housing discrimination is facing a charge of carrying a concealed weapon in an airport.
Jeffrey LaGrasso, a medical doctor, was not arrested. However, the Broward Sheriff’s Office issued a “notice to appear” in court after the gun was allegedly seen in a bag by Transportation Security Administration agents at Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport.
The incident occurred on November 20th.
From the police report: “I arrived on scene to a call regarding a firearm at a TSA Bravo Checkpoint on Saturday 11-20-2021 at 3.30pm at Terminal #1 (50 Terminal Dr) at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood
International Airport and made initial contact with reporting person TSA Agent (redacted) who stated that he was working the scanner at the the Bravo TSA Checkpoint at lane #2 stated that offender w/m Jeffery R Lagrasso 11-02-1973 placed black duffle bag on the belt and sent it through the scanner. (The TSA Agent) stated that he observed what he believed was a firearm in the bag via the scanner image. He immediately contacted his TSA Supervisor and had him recheck the image on the scanner.”
The gun, according to prosecutors in a report reviewed by BocaNewsNow.com, was a Sig Sauer 9mm Handgun.
Deborah LaGrasso is suing Seven Bridges, claiming that a previous board of directors discriminated against her by imposing a huge fine and suspension after she says she stuck up for her kids being verbally harassed by a group of angry tennis women on the community’s tennis courts. She then wrote about it on Facebook and was again sanctioned. Deborah LaGrasso claims she was targeted for being Christian in what she says is a largely Jewish community. Meantime, another woman — Rachel Tannenholz — told LaGrasso in a recorded telephone call to move to a ”Klan community.” Tannenholz, who is Jewish, was not sanctioned.
A federal magistrate has repeatedly refused to dismiss the case and again refused last week. Trial could take place this spring. Deborah LaGrasso seeks in excess of $7M and says the money will go to charity.
Husband Jeffrey LaGrasso, also named as a co-Plaintiff, was not arrested in the gun matter, but was issued a summons to appear in court. It is unclear why the gun was in his bag in the airport.
