Florida man, 76, arrested after fight over dating website ends in wife's broken hip

A 76-year-old man is facing criminal charges after pushing his wife when she found out he was roaming a dating website and accused him of cheating, according to an arrest report.

Edward Aronson of Lake Worth was arrested at Bethesda Hospital West early Sunday morning. A Palm Beach County Sheriff’s deputy was called to the hospital after a nurse said she overheard Aronson say he pushed his wife Sylvia Aronson.

Sylvia Aronson, 77, told the deputy she found her husband looking at a dating website and was very upset with him. The couple argued and after becoming increasingly upset, she slapped her husband on the left side of his face, according to an arrest report.

“After 33 years of marriage, I cannot believe it,” the deputy recalled Sylvia Aronson saying.

Edward Aronson responded by pushing her and she fell to the ground. Palm Beach County Fire Rescue crews were called to the Aronsons’ home and transported Sylvia Aronson to Bethesda.

Deputies say Edward Aronson admitted to pushing his wife and admitted that he was slapped.

Dr. Brian Berman told the deputy the fall broke Sylvia Aronson’s right hip, the report says.

The nurse told the deputy she heard Edward Aronson talking on the phone and said to the person, “She accused me of cheating and was yelling at me so I pushed her.”

While looking at her husband with fear, the nurse described, Sylvia Aronson was also on the phone and told the person on the other end not to come to the hospital because it would make things “much worse.”

The nurse said while Sylvia Aronson was looking at her husband, he was angrily glaring back at her. He then ordered the nurse to get ice for his swollen face.

Edward Aronson faces charges of battery on a person 65 years or older and aggravated battery on a person 65 years or older. He was released from the Palm Beach County Jail on Sunday after posting a $5,000 bond, records show.

  • Actress, singer, and comedian Vicki Lawrence has launched a national campaign to raise awareness of a form of hives that has stumped medical science, and made millions of people miserable - including herself.  It’s called “chronic idiopathic urticaria,” or CIU, and it affects an estimate 1.5 million Americans at any given time. The sad truth is that despite years of research, no one has been able to figure out what triggers the condition. Patients often waste a lot of time and energy trying to figure out why they have the condition, Lawrence told KRMG Wednesday. She knows, because she became a patient herself in 2011. “I think the frustrating part for patients is that you try to blame yourself,” she said. “You’re going ‘what am I not thinking? What have I done? What detergent have I changed? What am I eating that I’ve never eaten? What am I doing?’”  I think it’s the most frustrating thing for patients - trying to blame yourself, and trying to find an answer -- Vicki Lawrence But the name of the condition says it all.  The medical term “idiopathic” means any condition which is spontaneous or for which the cause is unknown - and CIU qualifies on both accounts. “There is no trigger,” Lawrence said, “so it can come and go as it pleases.” She said people who think they may have CIU may need to do some research to get help. “The trick to the whole deal is to find an allergist or a dermatologist who is familiar with the condition,” she told KRMG, and unfortunately many doctors aren’t. Her advice is to call the offices of allergists and dermatologists in the area, and if they’re don’t know about CIU, hang up and try someone else. While there’s no cure, there are treatments that bring relief from the hives. To learn more, visit the “CIU and You” website. 
  • A new, highly virulent strain of malicious software that is crippling computers globally appears to have been sown in Ukraine, where it badly hobbled much of the government and private sector on the eve of a holiday celebrating a post-Soviet constitution. The fresh cyber-assault Tuesday leveraged the same intrusion tool as a similar attack in May and proved again just how disruptive to daily life sophisticated cyber-assaults can be in this age of heavy reliance on computers. Hospitals, government offices and major multinationals were among the casualties of the ransomware payload, which locks up computer files with all-but-unbreakable encryption and then demands a ransom for its release. Ukraine and Russia appeared hardest hit. In the United States, it affected companies such as the drugmaker Merck and Mondelez International, the conglomerate of food brands such as Oreo and Nabisco. Multinationals, including the global law firm DLA Piper and Danish shipping giant A.P. Moller-Maersk, were also affected. The virus' pace appeared to slow by Wednesday, in part because the malware appeared to require direct contact between computer networks, a factor that may have limited its spread in regions with fewer connections to Ukraine.
  • Video of a Florida man’s “fishing first” has gone viral. The man, identified only as Joe, eyes a pair of snook in Tampa Bay from a balcony and decides to cast a lure out.  His first cast is unsuccessful, but he lands one of them on his second cast. The angler calls for a friend to run downstairs and out to reel the fish in.  He even tosses his pole down to the man before running down to take a picture with his catch. The snook was released back into the water. Tampa-based Salt Strong posted the video to YouTube earlier this week.   Within days the video had been viewed more than 40,000 times.   >>WATCH THE VIDEO BY CLICKING HERE
  • A day after Republican leaders unexpectedly delayed action on a Senate health care bill, President Donald Trump pressed GOP Senators to get on board with the legislative effort, arguing that it’s time to on from the Obama health law. “Obamacare is dying, it’s essentially dead,” the President said in a photo op at the White House. “It’s been a headache for everybody, it’s been a nightmare for many,” the President added, as he made clear his desire for the GOP to reach an agreement that can get 50 votes in the Senate. Trump: It's 'very tough' to get the health care plan approved, but it would be 'far better than Obamacare' https://t.co/Q3WDqN4gCr — CNN Politics (@CNNPolitics) June 28, 2017 In his remarks, Mr. Trump sounded optimistic notes about getting Republicans to back a health care bill, saying several times that he had a good meeting on Tuesday with GOP Senators. “We’re working very hard, we’ve given ourselves a little more time to make it perfect,” the President said. But in the halls of Congress, there was no sense that the GOP was on the verge of a health care breakthrough, as Republicans staked out different points of view on what should change. In a letter to the President, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) set out four different changes to the legislation, again expressing his opposition to a new regime of tax credits that would be used to help people pay for health insurance. Paul also frowned on a late change in the bill, which would say that if you go more than nine weeks without health insurance, then insurance companies could force you to wait 6 months before letting you buy an insurance plan. Sen Rand Paul R-KY wants 'continuous coverage' plan out – says it's a 'Republican version of the individual mandate' pic.twitter.com/18eeSsqRvz — Jamie Dupree (@jamiedupree) June 28, 2017 Paul said that appears to be nothing more than a “Republican version of the individual mandate,” the Obama Administration plan that forced people to buy health insurance, under the threat of a tax penalty if they did not. Republicans are expected to go home tomorrow. Congress is not in session next week. Lawmakers would return to Washigton the week of July 10.
