BOYNTON BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Boynton Beach man apparently learned that trying to escape from the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office doesn’t tend to work out well.

Dale Davant of Wincy Circle in Boynton Beach was in the process of being arrested overnight for felony battery when records reviewed by BocaNewsNow.com indicate he tried to take off.

It was not immediately clear how far he got. But booking information provided by the Palm Beach County Jail suggests he was moderately successful — if only for a few moments. In addition to the “battery” charge, Davant is now also charged with “resisting an officer without violence” and “escape — prisoner escape or attempted escape.”

Wincy was booked into jail at 1:11 Monday morning. He is, perhaps unsurprisingly, being held without bond as of 8:45 a.m. He will be arraigned later Monday.

Check back for updates once the affidavit of probable cause is processed by the Palm Beach County Clerk of Courts.
