DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — We don’t know if Palm Beach County will consider opening a jail in Kings Point, but it seems like PBSO could save a fair amount of gas money if it did. The Palm Beach County Jail is 22 miles from the Kings Point senior living community in Delray Beach. With gas prices soaring, it’s expensive to keep driving Kings Point residents to jail — but yet again, that’s exactly what deputies had to do overnight.

This time, the drive was for Jon Delarato of Brittany F. He was arrested early this morning on a charge of failing to appear at a hearing regarding a criminal motor vehicle violation back in 2021. A warrant was issued for his arrest on October 5th, and somehow, he managed to escape detection until today. It was not immediately clear how Delarato came into contact with PBSO.

Delarato appeared in front of a judge this morning. He’s expected to be released on his own recognizance later today.

The arrest is another in a series of arrests of Kings Point residents — for everything from one man shooting a dog walker on a the Kings Point golf course, to drugs, to battery, to assault, even a pool table attack.

Incidentally, Mr. Delarato’s ticket — that led to this morning’s arrest — was for operating a vehicle while his license was suspended. It was the second time police stopped him and found him driving despite his license being suspended.
