Juan GonzalezDavie, FL — A grieving father, angry over the death of his son in an alleged drunk driving accident, was arrested at the courthouse Monday after attempting to knock the stupid out of the man accused in the boy’s death.

On June 12, 2011, Juan Gonzalez Jr. was riding his motorcycle when he slammed into a Jeep Cherokee driven by John Powers. Police allege Powers was attempting to make a u-turn from northbound State Road 7 at Orange Drive. Gonzalez, who was traveling south, slammed on his brakes to avoid hitting the Jeep. The motorcycle skidded, slid on its side, and slammed into the Jeep. Gonzalez died from his injuries the next day.

A Davie police officer noticed the smell of alcohol on Powers’ breath, and several empty beer cans were found in his vehicle. He blew a 0.15, which is nearly twice the legal limit.

Powers was ultimately charged with DUI manslaughter and manslaughter with an unlawful blood alcohol level. He pleaded not guilty Monday. The Gonzalez family was in attendance at that hearing.

After his arraignment, he headed to the restroom with a friend. It was there that Juan Gonzalez Jr’s. pissed off papa allegedly approached him.

Police say 56-year-old Juan Gonzalez followed Powers into the restroom.

“You killed my son,” Gonzales reportedly said. “I will be watching you.”

Powers’ buddy, 59-year-old Jay Israel, told police Gonzalez grabbed him by the throat. After releasing Israel, Gonzalez then began punching Powers about the head and face. When Powers fell to the floor, Israel said, Gonzalez began taunting him.

A bloodied Powers beat feet out of the restroom and ran directly into a courtroom and tattled. Gonzalez was arrested before he was able to make it out of the courthouse.

Gonzalez has been charged with two counts of battery. No word on his bond/bail amount. Gonzalez has previously been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, leaving the scene of an accident and reckless driving after an arrest in 2006. He pleaded no contest on the charges and was sentenced to three years’ probation.

Powers made his $20,000 bond on the manslaughter charges, and is due to return to court in March.
