BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A disabled combat veteran was allegedly battered by a man who parked his Mercedes in a handicapped spot at Trader Joe’s in East Boca Raton. The Mercedes allegedly displayed neither a handicapped license plate nor a handicapped placard. When the disabled veteran confronted the driver, Marc Allen Brown allegedly assaulted him.
The Boca Raton Police Department arrested Brown, writing this in the arrest report:
“Victim 1 explained that he observed a vehicle parked in the handicap spot on the north end of the building with no placard. As Victim 1 was entering Trader Joe ‘s he observed a subject later identified as Marc Brown walking back to the vehicle. Victim 1 confronted Brown asking for his handicap placard. According to Victim 1 they got into a verbal argument and at one point Brown stuck his finger into Victim 1’s eye resulting in a scrape. Pictures of the injury were captured on my (body-worn camera).
I spoke with Brown who admitted to getting into a verbal argument with Victim 1 but when asked denied any physical altercation. Brown stated multiple times that he never struck Victim 1. When directly asked as to the origins of the mark on Victim 1’s eye, Brown denied being responsible.
Due to available evidence supporting the sequence of events as described by Victim 1 it is clear Brown committed the offense of Simple Battery FSS 784.3 (1A1) by sticking his finger into Victim 1 S eye resulting in an injury. Brown was placed under arrest at 2122 hours, and released with an Notice To Appear.“
A judge on Thursday carried over the case until December. The incident occurred in early August. BocaNewsNow.com just learned of the specifics and obtained Brown’s arrest report. Marc Allen Brown lives in the 100 block of NE 2nd Street.
