Broward Sheriff’s Office (BSO) Deputies responded to a domestic disturbance at the home of Tamarac Commissioner Marlon Bolton in January, records show. BSO deputies arrived at Bolton’s Ann Lee Lane home on January 26, 2021 at 9:30am. Bolton’s wife, Carla Tyson Bolton called BSO regarding a “verbal domestic disturbance.”
Carla Bolton told deputies she “got into a verbal altercation” with Marlon Bolton over surveillance cameras he installed in the hallway of their home. Mrs. Bolton told deputies the cameras violated her privacy. She feared hackers might be able to access the cameras.
Carla Bolton said she points the cameras at the ceiling when she is inside the home.
According to the BSO report, Carla Bolton “stated on the listed date and time, Marlon became upset that she moved the cameras and verbally threatened her that if she touches the cameras again he would kick her out of the residence. She advised nothing physical happened.”
Marlon Bolton refused to speak with deputies. The report states, “Contact was made with Marlon Bolton, who was inside the residence in an upstairs bedroom. He refused to speak with deputies on the incident.”
Deputies eased Mrs. Bolton’s fears of getting kicked out. They told her it was not possible without a court hearing the matter. Carla Bolton told deputies Marlon Bolton had “begun the process for a divorce, and that they both go to mediation in February of 2021.”
No charges were filed. There were no allegations of any physical violence.
