DELRAY BEACH, FL ( (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Kings Point Delray Beach seems to have a problem. More residents from Kings Point have been arrested and jailed since April than from any other community in South Palm Beach County. It is an incredible distinction for a “country club” that caters to senior citizens. At least 17 residents have been jailed over the past several months.

The latest: 63-year-old Daniel Filancia. He allegedly “attacked” a woman temporarily staying in his unit. It was not immediately clear if the woman was staying with him as a result of the apparent tornado that left one condo building uninhabitable during Hurricane Ian. This is the police report filed by the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office:

Upon my arrival I met with the victim. The victim has been a guest at the above address for approximately two weeks. The victim advised me she was talking to Daniel Filancia in the residence.

Filancia began to yell at the victim and accuse her of not paying attention to him. The victim responded to Filancia by stating that she was indeed paying attention. The victim then walked towards the fridge, at which point Filancia grabbed her left shoulder from the rear, spun her around and pushed her up against the fridge. The victim then walked out of the residence, at which point Filancia followed her. According to the victim, when Filancia and her got out front of the residence, Filancia hit her in the face with an open palm. The victim stated she was able to slightly get out of the way of the slap and just Filancia’s fingertips struck the right side of her cheek. I then spoke to the witness. The witness stated she observed Filancia “attack” the victim. The witness advised me that she heard the victim and Filancia argue followed by Filancia pushing her up against the fridge.

I then attempted to speak to Filancia. Filancia was intoxicated and continuously stated that the victim has been living with him “tax free” for the last two weeks. Filancia also continued to say the victim would not be welcome into his residence after this event. Filancia was unable to comprehend any questions and respond with a clear and concise answer. Due to the victim’s and the witnesses’ verbal statements, I found Filancia to be the primary aggressor during the altercation. In addition, Based upon my investigation I discovered Filancia did in fact touch the victim against her will, therefore I find probable cause to charge Daniel Filancia with Simple Battery, F. S. S // 784.03(1a1).

Filancia, of Tuscany E, was booked into the Palm Beach County late in the evening of October 16th. He was released early in the day on October 17th. A court date is pending. As reported by, other Kings Point arrestees include: sex offenders, alleged drunk drivers, alleged drug users, alleged batterers, a man who allegedly shot at someone for walking their dog on a golf course, and much more. Read all of our Kings Point coverage here.
