The owner of a luxury brokerage in Jupiter was arrested on Friday on a domestic battery charge.

Robert Thomson, broker and owner of Waterfront Properties, was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail on Friday for allegedly attacking his fiancee at Thomson’s home on Quayside Drive in Jupiter.

Late Thursday evening, the couple began arguing in the car on their way home “over Valentine’s Day disagreements and engagement issues,” his fiancee told the police. Both smelled of alcohol when the police were called by Thomson’s daughter, according to the arresting officer’s report.

Thomson was released from jail on Saturday, records show. He did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Thomson has owned Waterfront Properties and Club Communities and been a licensed real estate broker in Florida for more than 30 years, records show. His company handles properties ranging from more than $250,000 to $50 million, and has brokered deals that include the $36 million sale of a spec mansion in Palm Beach to Roger Ailes in 2016, the embattled Fox News founder who died the following year.

Thomson has been arrested before, going back to 1995, according to Palm Beach County records. In 2015, he faced charges of domestic violence against his ex-wife Lorea Thomson.
