MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) — A Broward teenager accused of tossing a 68-year-old woman into a pool during a party at an apartment complex is on house arrest.
The Miami Herald reports a judge on Tuesday ordered the 16-year-old to serve 21 days of house arrest. But he’s allowed to go to school, church and to travel with his basketball team.
The teen is charged as a juvenile with battery on a person over the age of 65. He’s shown on a video throwing Nancy James into the pool as she tried to break up a party near Fort Lauderdale that more than 200 teens showed up for on Saturday.
The teen turned himself into authorities on Monday. He faces another hearing in June.
