Firefighter Arrested For Attacking An Elderly Man


Reynaldo Miranda, who is a 47-year old firefighter, has arrested for assaulting an elderly man. According to the police report, Miranda was upset because the 71 year-old man’s vehicle was too close to his. He allegedly got out of the vehicle and began yelling at the elderly man. He then walked up to the victim’s vehicle and began striking the elderly man on the head.The incident occurred at Southland Mall in Miami, Florida. Miranda appeared in court on Wednesday May 7, 2014. He was charged with aggravated battery. The bond court judge stated that everyone makes mistakes in life, but what Miranda did to the elderly man was terrible.Miranda stated that the police report did not give all of the details of the story. He also told the judge that he has been a firefighter for 29 years and has a perfect work record. However, the judge stated that there was a witness there that saw the entire incident.Miranda did not want to comment as he left the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center. He also did not want to talk to 7News about the incident. He has been bonded out of jail. One day before he attacked the elderly person, he attended his co-worker’s event.
