A judge granted a $10,000 bail Friday for the Royal Palm Beach man who allegedly attacked his Palm Beach County sheriff’s deputy neighbor in a confrontation that ended after the deputy shot him several times.
Authorities arrested 36-year-old Aldo Alvarez in late May, just weeks after the May 8 confrontation where deputy Joshua McGehee said he was forced to shoot Alvarez after the man confronted him angrily and aggressively outside his home.
Prosecutors formally charged Alvarez with burglary Thursday. On Friday, Palm Beach County Circuit Judge Sandra McSorely set bail on the burglary charge at $10,000.
Alvarez had previously been held without bond on that charge, though he had a $3,000 bail for the single count of battery on a law enforcement officer, according to his attorney Wayne Richter.
Alvarez, a 36-year-old with mental issues, suffered gunshot wounds in the confrontation but has recovered.
