Lakewood, NJ - A disturbing incident that had a homeless Lakewood man pouring hot coffee on himself to earn a few dollars has yielded positive results, with two crowdfunding campaigns set up to raise money for the man and a member of the township’s Orthodox Jewish community coming forward to offer the 65 year old a shopping trip, food and shelter during the massive storm that dumped approximately two feet of snow on Lakewood this weekend.

The incident in question took place at approximately 2 PM on January 19th when an Orthodox Jewish young man approached a homeless man later identified as Ronald Leggatt and offered him $5 to pour a cup of hot coffee on his head.

According to Daily News reports, Leggatt, who was desperate for money and had been scouring the area near the Singins gas station on Cedarbridge Avenue for discarded lottery tickets in the hopes of finding a winner, agreed to the bizarre request, which was videotaped by the young man. 

Leggatt agreed to pour a second cup of coffee on his head, receiving a handful of loose change for his efforts, noting later in a videotaped interview that he had actually poured both cups of coffee away from his head, deliberately missing himself.

Lakewood resident Carlos Mejia, who observed the entire incident, shared the story on Facebook , saying that at first he thought he was observing an act of kindness but was appalled to see that what he was witnessing was nothing more than a tasteless joke.  Mejia said that he was outraged and confronted the young man, who began apologizing immediately.

Mejia’s angry post complained of an abuse of power in Lakewood by the township’s Orthodox Jews, noting that he had wanted to call the police but was told by the young man that with members of the Jewish community in positions of authority in the local government his attempts would be fruitless.

Mejia’s Facebook post has been shared over 2,300 times, catching the attention of the news media and the Lakewood Police.  A statement released by the Lakewood Police said that the incident was determined to be a display of poor judgment but involved no criminal activity since both Leggatt and the unnamed young man were willing participants and no injuries had been sustained.

The Ocean County Prosecutor’s office was called in to investigate Mejia’s claims that the incident was being recorded so that it could be featured on an Orthodox Jewish website showing members of the Jewish community mocking the homeless and playing jokes on them. Those claims were later proved to be inaccurate.

“This (incident) was not an organized effort in that community (the Orthodox community) to abuse the homeless,” Al Della Fave, spokesman for the prosecutor’s office, said in an interview  with the Brick Patch website.

Della Fave said that a concerted effort by his office’s High Tech Crimes Unit found no evidence of any such site and that the video was never posted on any site.

“What they found is that this was not an organized effort,” said Della Fave.  “There was no group conspiracy.”

Leaders of the Orthodox Jewish community have told authorities that the young man is known to suffer from mental issues and have issued statements saying that the incident was intolerable. 

Della Fave said that the young man was inspired by an obscure YouTube channel featuring videos of homeless people being pranked and that the young man has apologized repeatedly for his actions.

An apology was captured on video ran on The Lakewood Scoop and received over 36,000 hits, shows the prankster expressing his contrition and giving Leggatt a $20 bill, a hug and an opportunity to douse him with coffee, an offer that the homeless man graciously declined.

Orthodox Jewish Lakewood resident Ari Boyer was horrified to read about the incident on Facebook and he reached out to Leggatt in an attempt to do right by the homeless man.

“I met him the next day and took him for a haircut, to Walmart and gave him money for food,” Boyer told VIN News.  “We bought him a long sleeved t-shirt, a pair of pants he had always wanted, a coat and a watch.”

After his barbershop, a joyful Leggatt told Boyer that he felt like a new man and like he had just won the Powerball.

“This is the best day of my life,” said Leggatt.  “I fell like a million, billion dollars.”

After their shopping trip, where Leggatt dubbed Boyer his “best buddy,” the two men arranged to meet on Friday so that Boyer could put Leggatt up at a hotel to provide him with shelter during this weekend’s mega-storm. 

Leggatt failed to show up at the appointed time and place, leaving Boyer scrambling to locate the homeless man just hours before Shabbos.  When the two finally connected, they discovered that the hotel Boyer had originally contacted had closed unexpectedly and with Shabbos fast approaching, Boyer gave Leggatt money for another meal and arranged for a local organization to pick the homeless man up and take him to a different hotel. 

Boyer said that the organization neglected to pick up Leggatt as promised for unknown reasons and Pastor Steve Brigham, who has known Leggatt for eight years, located him on Friday night in his customary dugout and took him to a hotel.  Despite his efforts to help Leggatt in a variety of ways,  Boyer was denounced on social media for the chain of events that led to the homeless man returning to his dugout on Friday night. 

According to homeless advocates and shelter workers, homeless people are often resistant to stay in any kind of shelter, preferring the safety of their accustomed environment.

Two separate GoFundMe  campaigns established to benefit Leggatt have raised over $3,700 in just three days.  Brigham has been tasked with making sure that all funds raised are used appropriately.

“Housing is probably the most important thing that Ron needs right now,” said Brigham.  “We are looking for a hotel that has long term rates so we can put him up and from there do the best we can to take care of his basic needs.”

Brigham estimated that Leggatt’s monthly social security check nets him just $100.

“It is hard,” said Brigham. “We are trying to do research and maybe get him into some kind of senior facility.”

Leggatt sleeps at the home team dugout of the local ballpark, located a quarter of a mile away from the Singins gas station on Cedarbridge Avenue.

“It is tough,” said Brigham.  “He was sleeping on a bench that was only 18 inches wide and some of the scrapes and bruises on his face are from rolling off the bench and hitting his face on the concrete floor.”

Brigham said that Leggatt, who has what he termed “minor issues”,  was dropped off at a homeless encampment in Lakewood known as Tent City by his sister when she moved to Arizona several years ago.  Tent City was shut down by the Lakewood Township in the spring of 2014, with its approximately 60 residents placed in temporary housing for a one year period.  According to Brigham, there are currently no homeless shelters in all of Ocean County.

“Ron is very polite, from a middle class background,” said Brigham.  “He is very passive, very courteous and very friendly and has a lot of good attributes. He is very trusting of people.”

As someone who knows the individual who carried out this unfortunate incident I take issue with the caption on the picture. He is NO prankster and is NOT mentally disabled. I can only quote what he told me on Thursday evening about this unfortunate incident "It was a moment of bad judgement, clearly wasn't thinking and I wish it never happened and believe me it's not happening again".
He is a young well meaning boy that needs to learn a thing a two and it seems he really has learned from this sad story.
This Carlos Majia is an absolute jew hater and is maximizing on this story and making it more then it ever was. A lot of good is coming out from this sad story so everyone chill!!

This video is disturbing on so many level.
The frum community does not care less about the homeless or anyone not like them.
But when something like this is publicized we think we could wave $20 in his face, post it online I the most condescending manner possible (you're happy now? Yea?) and then take credit for being caring??

Mejia may be a Jew hater. However the beginning of this story gives him ammunition. Perhaps you should examine some Jewish attitudes towards non Jews as well as the other way around.

Sorry but a person that has within him to make a stupid joke like that is inexcusable and any excuse is not expectable. What human being can make a mistake like that? Sorry but the chilul hashem he has caused he has a lot to fix.

As reported this homeless poor sound was a middle class person at one time; and now look at him! The news wasn't portrayed right, had I have been writing it my headline would have read; MASSIVE CHILLUL HASHEM, TURNED INTO A KIDDUSH HASHEM!

I am deeply disturbed by your KASHERING this obvious person lacking MIDDOS whatsoever. There is no justification for someone finding amusement in ones misfortunes! Do you have an idea how many Chareidi unfortunates there are worldwide that turned homeless? Is this considered a MERACHEIM AL HABRIOS in Lakewood? By the way I'm not a Lakewood basher but I'm trying to set you straight; grow up and wake up, smell the coffee!

I believe you really did speak to this group because I read the wording of an apology. He apologized for what happened not for what he did and again what he told you was he sorry for what happened it's not something that just happened he did it and he refuses to take responsibility is it referring to the incident as something that happened. the coffee didn't pour itself over this poor man's head this little creep poured it over his head and that's what he needs to apologize for.

This dismissive attitude toward terrible behavior by some in our communities has to stop. A young, well meaning boy doesn't ask anyone, especially a person with who is id great need of help, to pour hot coffee on himself. Let's call this what it is-horrible and disgusting!

The guy who saw this horrible incident happen may very well be a "jew-hater", but if that is definitely not the main point one should take from the story. Yes, this kid is young and at 20 I made bad decisions too, but I think those of us who have been involved in the Orthodox world or education system know that there is some racism and dehumanizing of the 'other' (and even if its probably no more than in general society, its too much). That, I think is the most important point to take from this, and Iy"h we can all learn from this and improve our middos and concern for our fellow man.

Had a non-jew done what that sicko did, I do not believe mr mejia would have used exactly the same language as he did. His claims re the police response may or may not be a grudge that is shared by other (I don't know, but other areas make similar claims). In short there is no doubt that he is a jew-hater. Just how much is open for discussion.

One thing, though, for sure: Mr Ari Boyer did a fantastic thing and should be applauded.

No normal person would goad another person into doing something dangerous. It was wrong of the prankster to tell the homeless man to pour hot coffee over himself in order to get a monetary handout. Smart of the homeless man NOT to aim the coffee on himself. Desperate people do desperate things. In this case the prankster is putting a stumbling block before the blind - a chillul Hashem. He is a sicko and needs psychiatric intervention. How would he like someone telling him to pour hot coffee over himself? Totally insane. I hope he gets the professional help he obviously needs.

A true chesed by the Jewish community would be to fund low cost housing for a few homeless people. There are Jewish apartment owners who can make apartments available for low cost rent. If they rent to people on Governmental Assistance they are guaranteed rent payments on time. The Frum and General communities need to partner to help homeless people with long term housing. (not temporary shelters which are a band aid for the problem) food, clothing, job training then offer them reasonable employment.

 Jan 24, 2016 at 03:14 PM Name him! Says:

I think the story should name this young man who by the comments appears to be 20. This is not a kid. We should make sure that our daughters don't end up with him as a sociopath husband. His video pointing and coaching this unfortunate homeless man to claim all is forgiven is a mockery and makes things worse, not better. He is only remorseful that he was caught. The proof of this is that he doesn't show his face on camera. He doesn't even say what he is sorry for....Offering to pour (tepid) coffee on his own head is only more rediculous. Even Ron Leggatt, has more soul than him and wouldn't agree to that. This is so horrible...... there is just no words. I agree with previous posters who declared the us vs. them attitude that runs through Lakewood. They cannot claim "Yadeinu Lo Shafchu es Hadam Hazeh" figuratively speaking.

First, getting a homeless person to pour boiling water on his head for $5 so he can feed himself is a depraved animalistic act. Most normal people would be buying him dinner, not seeing how much they can torture him. Second, all these euphemisms and excuses saying it was an "unfortunate mistake" etc are incorrect. It was very premeditated including videoing the torture, and very deliberate. It was not a mistake and you can't get erase your act by just saying, yeah I was caught, sorry.

You need to be human in order to be NORMAL and you need to be taught KOVOD HABRIOS in order to respect another human being. Had he been in Japan, he would have gotten LASHES which he'd never forget.
