DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Delray Beach resident is facing multiple charges after he allegedly punched a woman in the Checkers at 450 West Atlantic Avenue, then mocked her family as they ate dinner. Christopher Lehmann of the 300 block of SW 4th Avenue in Delray Beach later spit at officers and threatened them.

The following is the narrative written by a Delray Beach Police Officer who responded to the scene. BocaNewsNow.com obtained the arrest report:

The following incident occurred in the City of Delay Beach, Palm Beach County, Florida. On 08/31/22 at 2245 hours, I was dispatched to Checkers 450 W Atlantic Ave in reference to a simple battery. I made contact with the Victim who stated a white male suspect hit her in the face.

The victim stated she was sitting at a table outside of the business when a white male approached her and her family. The white male was mocking the family as they were trying to eat their food. The victim asked the white male to leave and he became irate. He approached the woman and hit her in the face with a closed fist. The white male suspect walked west on W Atlantic Ave wearing a brown hat, black tank top, gray shorts, and black Adidas shoes.

Sgt Leon made contact with the suspect later identified as Christopher Lehmann matching the description at 725 W Atlantic Ave (Marathon) I conducted a show-up with the victim who positively identified Lehmann as the man who stuck her in the face. She provided a sworn statement recorded on my department-issued body-worn camera. Crime scene was unavailable, I took a photo of the injury to the victim’s face (minor swelling) just under her left eye.

Lehman was read his Miranda Warnings and requested that I call his lawyer. He would not talk about the incident. While typing the report, Lehman was making threats to officers in the back of my fully marked police vehicle. He stated he “was going to uppercut us and fight us” and “Bash our heads open” when he got up to the county jail and got out of handcuffs. He kept making these statements even after being warned to stop.

Lehmann also purposely spit in Ofc. Otero’s face from the inside of my fully marked police vehicle while Ofc Otero was standing outside the vehicle. Based on the above facts, probable cause exists to charge Christopher Lehmann with 784.03 (1A1) SIMPLE BATTERY (TOUCH OR STRIKE), 838.021 (3B) CORRUPTION BY THREAT AGAINST PUBLIC OF, 784.07 (2B) BATTERY ON OFFICER, FIREFIGHTER, EMT ET.

Christopher Lehmann, 36, was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail at 12:57 a.m. Thursday. He remains locked up Saturday morning.
