ORLANDO, Fla. — An 84-year-old veteran was transported to the hospital Saturday night in critical condition after a confrontation with an Orlando police officer. Monday morning, Daniel Daley remains in critical condition.
The incident began when a police officer was dispatched to The Caboose bar on North Orange Avenue south of Princeton Street around 11:00pm Saturday night, after reports that Daley was arguing with a tow truck driver.
Witnesses say the World War II veteran touched Officer Travis Lamonte several times during the argument, and in response the officer slammed him to the ground.
