People, can't we just get along?
A fight Saturday afternoon at the Big Pine Flea Market led to the arrest of David Leon Maxwell, a 56-year-old
A 71-year-old Cudjoe Key man, who was a vendor at the flea market, told deputies he had been working his booth when Maxwell became agitated, walking up and down in front of his booth calling him a "cheap Jew," the release stated.
Maxwell reportedly walked through the man's booth twice while repeating the insult until the vendor said that he finally told him not to enter the booth again.
According to the vendor and witnesses, the alleged flea market bully then pushed the senior twice; the vendor then struck Maxwell in the face.
When Maxwell again pushed the man, the vendor's wife began to scream, which alerted two off-duty
The cops held Maxwell down until deputies arrived and arrested Maxwell, charging him with aggravated battery of an elderly person, battery, showing evidence of prejudice in the commission of a crime and resisting arrest.
