WPEC-TV CBS12 News :: News - Top Stories - Elderly man faces homelessness after being evicted for growing a garden: BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. - Rules are rules and the homeowners association inside Royal Manor Estates in Boynton Beach follows them very closely.
That's why a 4' x 8' garden outside the home of Israel Negron has put management over the edge and the Negron on the street.
"Someone's getting kicked out because of growing vegetables is insane and cruel ," said Barry Silver, Negron's attorney.
Silver attempted to file an emergency stay of eviction but the court denied it without a hearing.
The 72-year-old will have to vacate even though he owns his mobile home.
Negron did not take the news very well.
"I had to take him to the emergency room," said one friend.
