A 16-year-old boy turned himself in after a video posted on social media that showed a woman being slammed to the ground then tossed into a pool at a rowdy pool party in North Lauderdale over the weekend.
The teen surrendered to Broward Sheriff’s Office Monday around 5 p.m. He faces one count of battery on a person 65 years of age or older.
BSO was looking into the incident that happened Saturday at the pool at the Players Place Townhomes on Champions Way.
The video shows the 68-year-old woman, identified as Nancy James, walking with her two dogs as she approached the group to ask them to turn down their music. A group gathers around James as someone is heard saying “throw her in” in the background.
OUR PRIOR REPORT ON THIS:
THE MEDIA is ignoring a South Florida pool party that nearly turned deadly. The assault on an elderly woman in South Florida was caught on video. She was trying to get high school partiers to stop being lunatics and walked up to the them to speak. A guy then picks her up and drops her on the ground. He picks her up AGAIN and throws her in the pool!
Luckily, the woman managed to leave with her dogs on her own but was later taken to the hospital. She’s now in stable condition but suffered a head injury when she was dropped on the ground.
Richard Grenell tweeted out that this guy should be arrested: WE AGREE!
Notice how everyone runs after this happens instead of trying to help the woman and her two dogs out of the pool. It’s caught on video and has gone viral so hopefully this guy will be caught and charged with assault.
