Tomato fight leaves man with broken neck
Cops ask anyone with information on the suspect to contact CrimeStoppers at 305-471-TIPS (8477).
A dispute over a tomato in South Miami-Dade sent a Miami Beach man to the hospital with a fractured neck and left police scrambling to identify his attacker.
Robert Lerner, 44, was on his way to the Redland area for a photo shoot with his 10-year-old daughter just after 9 a.m. on Jan. 28 when she became fascinated by the sight of a tomato field.
"She'd never seen one before," Lerner told The Miami Herald on Monday night. She thought it was such a beautiful thing."
So Lerner, driving west on Southwest 288th Street, pulled over at a field between Southwest 172nd and 177th avenues so she could pick one.
That's when it got ugly.
A man, claiming to be the owner, parked his Jeep Wrangler in front of him.
"He was yelling and calling us thieves," Lerner recalled. "I tried to explain it was just one tomato. But before I could, he did some -- I don't even know -- flip move on me." Then the man drove away in his Jeep.
After his fall to the pavement, Lerner's neck became stiff. He drove his daughter to the modeling assignment a half mile away, and then decided to call 911.
He was taken to South Miami Hospital, where doctors placed titanium rods in his neck.
Now he is wearing a neck brace, which could be on for as long as three months, doctors told him. Lerner, who constructs drum sets for a living, is now unable to work.
He gave police a detailed description of his attacker, which they used to create a composite sketch. The attacker was described as 5 feet, 9 inches tall and about 175 pounds with light-colored, salt-and-pepper hair.
Police ask anyone with information about the attacker to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-8477
