An early morning argument between a Palm Beach Shores man and a woman next door over the small size of his manhood sparked a police shooting that left the man wounded and facing years in prison, Gossip Extra has learned.
Police sources tell me Adam Brown, 45, was swimming naked in the pool of the El Coqui apartment complex about 2:30 a.m. yesterday when a female neighbor started trash-talking about his penis.
“She said something about it being really small,” said one investigator at the scene who asked not to be named. “So, he just got out of the pool, still naked, walked into his apartment and came out with a rifle.”
Brown allegedly knocked on the door of the woman, identified as Jenny Arroway, after she retreated inside. When she opened, the source said he pointed the rifle at her face, then ”he told her: ‘How do you like the size of this?’”
Brown allegedly held Arroway at gun point as she tried to calm him down, according to the police report. She talked to him calmy about whether the rifle was loaded, and Brown replied that it was. Two other women, also neighbors, were in Arroway’s apartment at the time.
Eventually, two police officers showed up and told him to put down his rifle.
So the cops opened fire, striking Brown.
Brown is being treated at St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach and is expected to live.
He is, however, charged with three counts of aggravated assault, two of assaulting a police officer and one count of burglary with a weapon.
The word at the complex is that the pool gets quite cold at night.
“We did hear that this whole thing started when someone made fun of Mr. Brown,” said Palm Beach Shores Police Lt. Steve Langevin.
