Help from a Fort Lauderdale Battery Arrest Attorney
Mayhem resurfaced shortly after some of the beaches in Broward County reopened. A man has been arrested after he reportedly assaulted several women in the middle of the day as they tried to re-establish their normal lives. A witness was standing by and saw at least one of the accounts. The witness claimed that the women were doing nothing but minding their business when a young man appeared in a car out of nowhere and assaulted one of the young ladies for no apparent reason.
The witness stated that the woman looked like she was just exercising and enjoying her day. The defendant got out of his car and walked up to the woman and grabbed her behind. The woman responded with some choice words and then pulled out her telephone to call the police. The suspect apparently left and then returned to the same beach where he assaulted several other women. One of the women said that he tried to force her to get into his vehicle by grabbing her forcefully. The victim stated that the suspect was acting strangely and laughing while he was assaulting her.
Arrested and Charged
The police quickly got hold of the defendant and took him in for booking. So far, he has been charged with one count of false imprisonment and two counts of simple battery. If convicted, he faces up to five years in prison for the false imprisonment and up to one year in jail for each of the simple battery charges. He may also have to pay some hefty fines.
