Man who threw punch during Nelson event to attend anger classes

A Miami-Dade man who punched a demonstrator at a healthcare rally has reached a plea deal with prosecutors and will take anger management courses and serve 50 hours of community service.

Raul Anasagasti, 56, is scheduled to appear in Miami-Dade Circuit Court Thursday.

Back in September, Anasagasti punched a 65-year-old man in the face after a heated exchange. Police said Luis Perrero was attending the rally outside the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce, headlined by U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., when Anasagasti, driving by in his green pickup, stopped and began arguing with the crowd.
