A Miami-Dade man who punched a demonstrator at a health care rally has reached a plea deal that includes anger-management courses and 50 hours of community service.
Back in September, Raul Anasagasti, 56, punched a 65-year-old man in the face after a heated exchange.
Police said Luis Perrero was attending the rally outside the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce, headlined by U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., when Anasagasti, driving by in his green pickup, stopped and began arguing with the crowd.
After Perrero uttered an expletive in Spanish, Anasagasti punched him in the face, knocking him to the ground.
Anasagasti, who owns Galo Air Conditioning in South Miami-Dade, was charged with battery on a person 65 or older.
