According to police, an argument broke out after the Boland brothers allegedly bought beer for the teens. Roon told police that Robert Boland punched him because he believed the teen had told a convenience store clerk about Robert Boland buying beer for the teens. When Robert Boland came at Bouchard, Brad Heard struck Robert Boland on the head with a golf club, knocking him to the ground, according to police reports. Bouchard then hit him with a skateboard, reports said. Yinh, a Dwyer High School arrest reports. Brad Heard ana Bouchard, a Jupiter High School student, hit Charles Boland in the head with a golf club and skateboard, reports said. During Friday's court hearing, attorneys for the teens also asked the judge to order investigators to preserve toxicology samples taken from the victims. Tests for drugs and alcohol on the Boland brothers' blood "may be extremely relevant to the defense," said Roon's attorney, Michael Salnick. "There are some problems with the case," Salnick said after the hearing. Salnick declined to elaborate but said "self-defense will be prevalent." By Christine Stapleton Palm Beach Post Staff Writer WEST PALM BEACH Five teens with clean records, decent grades and skilled lawyers sat shackled in court Friday as their parents and attorneys implored a judge to send them home despite their arrests for a beating death last weekend. Attorneys for the teens told Circuit Judge Karen Martin that Riviera Beach police detectives had told them Thursday they would agree to releasing the teens to their parents until prosecutors file formal charges. However, Assistant State At torney Craig Salisbury said prosecutors plan to treat them as adults and asked that they be held at the juvenile detention center because the fatal beating death of Robert Boland, 30, was "cruel and heinous." Boland's brother, Charles Boland, 32, is in fair condition at St. Mary's Medical Center. The judge has agreed to reconsider releasing the teens after he hears from the detectives at a court hearing Monday.

Three men from Fort Lauderdale learned the hard way Wednesday after loading stolen computer and video equipment into a Ford Mustang taken from suburban Boca Raton, authorities said. The car overheated on Griffin Road in Cooper City, and the trio ran when police showed up to investigate. The men Shane Johnson, 19; Brian Buck, 19; and Atom Gullo, 20 were caught by city officers and Broward sheriffs deputies, who later searched their apartment and found a sawed-off shotgun and blasting caps stolen from Boca, officials said. LAKE WORTH City attorney Betty Resch said Friday she will reimburse the city $1,031 for an ethics class mandated by the Florida Bar for a legal rules violation. Mayor Tom Ramiccio said he would ask Resch to repay the money. Resch, whose salary is $71,186, said she wanted to put the matter behind her and would pay back to her department budget the $750 fee for the class and $281 for hotel expenses and mileage. Last summer, the Bar directed Resch to take the course be cause she had contacted an opposing lawyer's client without the lawyer's permission. The bar concluded that Resch did not appreciate the gravity of the violation.

"We're not going to be able to stop everybody from dumping, but if boaters are unaware, they can't comply," she said. Swimmers who encounter untreated waste could develop skin rashes, stomach aches or hepatitis. State DEP officials want to increase the number of public and private pumpout stations from 250 to more than 600 to increase boater use.
