By Buddy Nevins, BrowardBeat.com, for SouthFloridaReporter.com, Nov.3,2015 – Just days before Al Lamberti left office in defeat, a computer technician working for the Broward Sheriff’s Office smashed the former sheriff’s hard drive with a hammer.
On Sunday, the same BSO computer geek, Anthony James Petruzzi, was busted for domestic violence.
A deputy arrested Petruzzi just after 2 a.m. The deputy was responding to a “disturbance” in an eighth floor room at the Wyndham Hotel on Deerfield Beach’s beach.
His girlfriend told the deputy that Petruzzi “choked her outside of JB’s by the beach which impeded her breathing and that Petruzzi choked her again between the pier and the Wyndham hotel causing her to push back before nearly passing out.”
