BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Charles Segler, a Delray dentist who lives in Boca Raton, was jailed on a battery charge early Wednesday morning.

Segler, 61, was arrested following a “domestic disturbance” investigation by Boca Raton Police. He was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail around 2am and released on his own recognizance shortly after noon.

Segler was charged with felony domestic battery back in 2011 but the State Attorney’s Office declined to prosecute.

While not specifically commenting on this case, our legal experts remind us that domestic battery charges are often filed as part of divorce maneuvering — but frequently are “down filed” or not prosecuted when the “victim” refuses to testify or the State Attorney’s Office decides the case lacks evidence or substance.
