A Boca Raton man at Boca Bash tried to strangle and hold his girlfriend underwater until witnesses broke up the struggle, authorities said.
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers charged Cole Goldberg, 23, with felony attempted murder and domestic battery in the April 24 incident as hundreds of 10464191265?profile=RESIZE_180x180boats gathered in Lake Boca Raton for the annual Boca Bash party.
Witnesses said Goldberg and the woman got into a heated argument before she jumped into the water to get away and he followed.
Goldberg, a witness said, “came up from behind her and grabbed her by the neck and pushed her underwater. He held her underwater and (another witness) pulled her away from him,” the FWC arrest report said.
The girlfriend, 32-year-old Caroline Schwitzky, told FWC officers that she and Goldberg had been dating for about a year. Schwitzky played a modeling agent in 2016 in the reality show “90-Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?” on cable channel TLC.
Goldberg was taken to the Palm Beach County Jail and later released on $60,000 bond.
In other incidents at Boca Bash, authorities charged nine people with boating under the influence, one for producing a fake ID and another on an out-of-county warrant.
