Leaon Balfour is a 16-year-old teenager living in North Lauderdale, Florida. He and his friends were having a party in around the ruckus pool in the townhouse complex.
They were playing the music so loud that it was disturbing the neighborhood. They had to call the sheriff deputy but they were late to arrive.
So, Nancy James, a neighbor took it upon herself to check them. Holding her two dogs, she stopped by. She told them to reduce the music they were playing but instead of them to listen to her some of the partygoers started yelling that James should be thrown in.
Out of everyone in the party, Balfour was the only one that listened, complied and took action. He body slammed James, a 68-year-old woman even though people thought he slipped.
However, he gave people another thought as he continued attacking the woman. He stood up, dragged her and dropped her inside the pool. They woman’s dogs escaped the attack as they flew the scene.
While most of the partygoers fled, some waited to help the woman by picking her out of the water and looking for her dogs.
Balfour fled the scene with the woman injured with a bruised leg and shoulder. When the sheriff’ deputy later came around and heard what happened, Balfour, the 16-year-old boy was declared wanted.
He later realized how bad what he has done is and surrendered himself to the police.
