BOYNTON BEACH, FL – Boca Post (BocaPost.com) — Bryan Bosscawen of Boynton Beach has been arrested for Domestic Battery by Strangulation, according to jail records released to Boca Post by the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.
Bryan Bosscawen, 54, of 12371 Boneventure Drive in the Westchester Country Club in Boynton Beach, was arrested early Sunday morning by the Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office. Boca Post has been notified that the charge filed is “BATTERY – COMMIT DOMESTIC BATTERY BY STRANGULATION”.
For Bryan Bosscawen, getting arrested for domestic battery is nothing new. This arrest will mark the 4th time Bryan has been charged with abusing his wife this year.
The couple appears to be in a continuous cycle, fueled by alcohol, where Bryan Bosscawen ends up getting physical with his wife and then later arrested. The charges are later dropped because Gaildoreen Bosscawen, the wife, becomes an uncooperative witness, forcing the State Attorney to drop the charges. Sadly, this is typical behavior of abused spouses.
