DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The Delray Beach Police Department responded to the area of Country Club Acres on Friday afternoon for reports of shots fired. While no one was apparently hit, Derek Tucker is now in jail, facing five charges related to the incident.
Tucker, who we have reported on before, lives in the 4900 block of Lincoln Road. He is now charged with “kidnap-false imprisonment of an adult,” “simple assault – threat to do violence,” “firing a weapon in public or on residential property,” “cruelty toward child,” “resist an officer without violence.”
Tucker, 32, was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail at 7:22 p.m. and is being held without bond on except the child cruelty charge. Bond on that charge is now set at $3,000.
Charges from 2020 of possession of Xanax and possession of a firearm during a felony were not pursued by prosecutors.
