Three weeks of home detention with breaks allowed for school, church and even basketball practice. That’s the sentence handed down by a Broward County, Florida judge against a 16-year-old charged with assaulting an elderly woman.
The incident occurred at the Player’s Place apartment complex Saturday, where a loud party with over 200 attendees was being held in the pool area. Building resident Nancy James, 68, who is also on the association board thereat, called the noise complaint into the police and went downstairs with her two dogs to ask the party goers if they could lower the music.
James was then surrounded by a group of teenagers and one, later arrested and identified as Leon Balfour, grabbed her, picked her up and slammed her to the ground before picking her back up and throwing her into the swimming pool.
