BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. (AP) - A South Florida man has been charged with battery after authorities say he lost his temper in a parking lot and dragged a 92-year-old woman from her car.

Palm Beach County Sheriff’s deputies say 48-year-old Craig Shevis approached the victim’s car. The victim said she was parked under an overhang while waiting for an attendant to bring a wheelchair for her husband, who cannot walk. She said she would move the car shortly.

The Palm Beach Post (https://tinyurl.com/hvvc79o) reports Shevis opened the car door and pulled the woman from the vehicle. Authorities said he got back into his car with an older woman and a home health aide and left.

Deputies tracked him to his home using his license plate number and charged him Thursday with battery on a person 65 or older and burglary of an occupied vehicle.
