The report states that Matthew Macqueen Weber changed his story several times, blaming an unidentified “Muslim” and three “Trinidadians” among other groups for making him feel threatened.

Weber and his friend, August Wolf, were kicked out of the Blue Martini around 3:30 a.m. after they became involved in an altercation, the report said. Someone in the club told police that Weber had a weapon, but the claim was discounted.

But, the report said, Weber did have a gun. He used it to fire several shots from the passenger seat as he drove off with Wolf.

The vehicle was stopped a short distance away by Boca Raton police. Weber, 22, told police he had a gun under the passenger seat and fired “warning shots” because he felt threatened.

Weber then told several versions of what took place. In one, he said a Muslim man approached him and said the “white man is the devil.” In another, he said three “Trinidadians” or “Indians” called him racial slurs. In a third version, a black man with “straggly” hair called him a name.

“It should be noted that Weber appeared extremely intoxicated …” the report said.

Wolf, who was driving the vehicle with Weber as a passenger, was arrested and is facing a DUI charge. Wolf, of Palm Beach Gardens, was released on his own recognizance.

Weber is facing charges of discharging a firearm from a vehicle and using a firearm under the influence of alcohol. He walked out of the Palm Beach County Jail on Saturday under supervised release.

PBSO: Man at work opens fire in Fun Depot parking lot

Tindell

A Riviera Beach man landed himself in jail last week after shooting at a car in Fun Depot’s parking lot west of Lake Worth while working at a labor site, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said.

Jonathan Tindell, 33, faces charges of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and discharging a firearm in public.

According to a probable-cause affidavit made public Tuesday, Tindell was working Sept. 28 for a labor company with another man in a business plaza next to Fun Depot, an amusement center on 10th Avenue North. At about 8:30 a.m. a gold Honda Accord drove suspiciously into the parking lot toward Fields and Tindell.

Once the car pulled up, Fields started to run toward the Fun Depot and the car’s passenger chased after him. When the driver of the vehicle stepped out, Tindell started shooting at him, according to the police report.

PBSO deputies said the driver hid behind the van to avoid getting shot and Tindell then walked with his co-worker toward Fun Depot.

A surveillance video at the Fun Depot shows Tindell openly shooting at the van and then walking away with his co-worker. Police said “there was a clear risk other people could have been harmed” by Tindell’s firing, and since he is a convicted felon, he “should not be in possession of a firearm.”

Police arrested Tindell, who was being held Wednesday at the Palm Beach County Jail on a $12,000 bond.

State records show that Tindell previously served a five-year sentence for robbing a store with a firearm in 2003 and that he was released from prison in 2008.

The arrest report is heavily redacted but states that the 32-year-old woman and Carson, 46, were in a relationship from 2006 to 2010. During that time, the woman admitted to West Palm Beach police detectives that she created an undetermined number of pornographic videos with Carson.

The woman told detectives that she blocked Carson from all her social media sites and emails after receiving a message that stated, “I miss you.”

After opening a business in West Palm Beach in April, the woman said she received an email on her business account from a “Daniel” who was requested a meeting.

“Why would you contact me?” the woman responded.

“I just wanted to see you,” Carson wrote.

“No, because I have a boyfriend,” the woman replied.

The woman then received a still photograph from Carson and taken from a pornographic video she had made years earlier with Carson, the report said. When the woman did a Google search, she found one of the videos on an X-rated site. Another video of the woman and Carson were found on other porn sites.

The report states Carson demanded money from the victim to take the videos down. The woman consented to have sexual encounters with Carson videotaped, but did not give him permission to post the videos to the X-rated site, the report said.

During a controlled phone call August 8 between the woman and Carson that was monitored by detectives, Carson said he posted the videos in the hopes of making money. About a week after the call, Carson posted at least one video having sex with the woman on a porn site, the report said.

Police arrested Jesse Lee Anderson, 19, on Thursday on charges of grand theft auto.

On Sept. 19, a Delray Beach resident reported to police that his 2014 Chevy Camaro was stolen at his apartment east of Interstate 95 just south of Linton Boulevard. He said a spare set of keys was in the car’s glove compartment.

As police investigated, a woman called a few days later and said she saw the same Camaro in her gated community near West Atlantic Avenue that was backed into a parking space. She told police she saw Anderson, and when she tried to say hello to him, he covered his face, mumbled, and walked away.

Police located and arrested Anderson less than a mile away from where the Camaro was parked. As officers questioned Anderson, he said that he knew the car was stolen “but he did not steal it, rather just went for a joyride,” the arrest report states.

Anderson remained in the Palm Beach County Jail on Friday on a $1,000 bail.

The victim met Vanessa Hall in August from an ad on the website “seeking someone to keep him company,” the arrest report said. Hall agreed to meet the victim at his home in the city. She told him she did not want money, “just fun for the both of us.”

After the two had sex, Hall told the victim that she was only 17 years old, and if he did not take her to shopping and give her money, she would call the police and tell her father.

The victim spend around $7,000 on purchases at a mall and received a call from Hall several days later demanding him $3,500 for a down payment on a car or she would release pictures she took while they had sex.

The victim refused to give Hall the money, and she then threatened him to come up with another $8,000 to spend on a lawyer “because she was turning him in,” police said.

The victim then contacted police, who tracked down Hall’s telephone number and discovered she was actually 28. Hall was identified by the victim through a photo lineup and was arrested on charges of threats and extortion.

Hall was in the Palm Beach County Jail on Thursday, with her bail set at 10,000.

The girl told authorities that Williamson used the site to tag her in a photo and to send her direct messages. Williamson allegedly asked the girl to send him photos similar to ones she had shared with her boyfriend. He then sent the girl a picture of himself exposed, the sheriff’s office said.

The girl discontinued the chat and reported it to authorities. In August, an investigator from the Internet Crimes against Children Task Force tracked Williamson’s Facebook profile to his employer in Lake City, then to his home in Wellborn.

On Sept. 8, a Palm Beach County deputy traveled to north Florida to meet Williamson at his home. He allegedly admitted to sending the photo, saying to the deputy, “I knew I shouldn’t have but I did anyway.”

He was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail Saturday and released Sunday on $50,000 bail.
