Joffre was home on leave and attending a birthday party in Canoga Park, California on September 26, 1996, with several of his friends who were also marines. They noticed that there were several rival gang members at the party. While there, a fight broke out between the gang members causing Joffre and his friends from the Marine Corp to leave. After realizing he had forgotten his wallet, he returned to the house, though his friends drove off unaware of his absence.
After locating his wallet, he was threatened by gang leader Luie Quezada and two other gang members. As he tried to scale a wall, Joffre was pulled down by the attackers and was severely beaten. At one point, Quezada picked up a wooden board and bashed Joffre's head opened. The three men left and Joffre was soon taken to the hospital. He was in a coma that doctors did not believe he would survive. However, he survived the attack but has several complications due to it, and was forced to take an honorable discharge in the military. The two other gang members were arrested, but Quezada vanished shortly after and is now wanted for attempted murder.
