3rd Incident: (copied verbatim from officer report for most accurate documentation of incident and with names and golf cart ID redacted).
“I was dispatched to 200 Crandon Blvd in reference to a booting dispute. Upon arrival, contact was made with (representative from) KB Booting. He stated the property owner advised him that a female drove a (color) golf cart onto the property, parked it, and then left the Key Colony Plaza to go elsewhere. KB Booting was called to boot the golf cart, and a boot was placed on the front driver side tire.
I then made contact with her father who did not want to respond to the parking lot, which was the incident location, and demanded I respond to Starbucks, because it was too hot outside. I then walked to Starbucks and asked him to step outside, as Starbucks management stated they did not want him inside the store any longer as they were trying to conduct business and he was causing a disturbance.
When speaking to the male he stated he was not present when the incident occurred. He admitted his adult daughter was operating the golf cart, he further admitted knowledge that his daughter had left the Key Colony Plaza in reference to vehicle immobilization. Furthermore, the male stated he was not leaving until Starbucks agreed to pay for the booting, because of how much money he spends at Starbucks. He blamed Starbucks for not having signage at their entrance to advice patrons that they cannot leave their vehicle parked at Key Colony Plaza, while attending other shopping centers. The store manager onsite explained several times that she could not authorize such payment to him, as it would have to be someone else who is not there today. I further explained to him that Starbucks was under no obligation to pay his booting fee, and if he refused to pay the property owner had the right to tow his vehicle.
The male then went on about another male who he clearly stated he profiled as a “predator,” who whistled at his daughter when she walked onto Crandon Blvd and stated to her “you cannot park here.” The male said this was harassment and no one should whistle in the United States of America. The male he was referring to as a predator, is the property manager of Key Colony Plaza who whistled to get the attention of the female, in an attempt to give her a courtesy notice of not being able to park and leave the property, which she ignored.
As I felt the booting was not going to be resolved due to him not understanding that Starbucks was not going to pay his booting fee, I requested his identification, and the information of his daughter who was not present to state what occurred, so that I may document the incident in a police report. The male refused to provide me with neither his nor his daughter’s information. Subsequently, he agreed to pay KB Booting for $65 for the removal of the boot. The boot was immediately removed.”
ID determined from golf cart sticker to be that of an expired decal, owner subsequently identified and advised it needs to be registered annually.
