Can you handle this memo in Fort Pierce? September 23, 2014

A woman in Fort Pierce said she was walking when Marquita Williams asked whether she got the memo.

“What memo?” the woman replied.

“The one that says I’m going to hit you in your (poop),” Williams is quoted as saying.

MARQUITA_WILLIAMS_mug2-150x150After the exchange about the memo, the victim told Williams she wouldn’t fight a pregnant person.That’s how the woman, identified as the victim, said the Aug. 25 confrontation with Williams began, according to a recently released arrest affidavit. The victim told Fort Pierce police that Williams, 27, is mad because the victim tried to date her child’s father about four years ago.

“I don’t give a (expletive) about being pregnant, I will still beat your (buttocks),” Williams is quoted as saying.

The victim said she kept walking. She said she went to her aunt’s home, and told her aunt that Williams is trying to fight.

Williams walked past the aunt’s home. She eventually dropped her purse, putting her hands in a “fighting position.”

Two other people – a mother and a daughter — came out, and Williams told them, “I will hit you in your (poop), pregnant and all.”

It wasn’t immediately clear how striking a person’s “(poop)” could injure that person.

Williams allegedly threatened to hit the victim “in her (poop),” and the daughter suggested that Williams wait until Williams gives birth.

Williams told the daughter to “shut the (expletive) up,” and, “I will hit you in the (poop), too.”

“Williams stated on her dead mother’s head, wherever she sees (the daughter or the victim) she will beat their (buttocks),” an affidavit states.

Williams told police everyone was lying.

“She stated that she told (the victim) when I drop my baby we’re going to have to fight,” the affidavit states.

Williams said the issue was between her and the victim, and that everyone should mind their business.

Williams, of the 1700 block of North 44th Street in Fort Pierce, was arrested on a misdemeanor assault charge.

 

Food fighting man wants FBI, not lawyer

A cheese flap at the jail lead to criminal charges and a request to speak with the FBI, according to recently released arrest affidavits.

Dowling_Adam_mug-219x300Jerald Rogers, a 36-year-old inmate at the St. Lucie County jail, told sheriff’s investigators Sept. 9 that fellow inmate Adam Dowling, 31, asked him if he wanted a piece of cheese.

Lucie County jail, told sheriff’s investigators Sept. 9 that fellow inmate Adam Dowling, 31, asked him if he wanted a piece of cheese.

Rogers said he did want the cheese, but didn’t want Dowling to touch it.

This evidently cheesed off Dowling because Rogers said Dowling threw the cheese on Rogers’ tray.

Rogers_Jerald_mug-232x300“Rogers then picked up the cheese and threw it back on Dowling’s tray and tried to grab another piece,” an affidavit states.

Rogers said Dowling tossed his food tray on Rogers, who slapped Dowling in the face.

Meanwhile, Dowling said “he plea(d)s the fifth until he can talk, not (to) a lawyer but to the FBI.”

It’s unclear whether the FBI investigates cheese throwing incidents.

Dowling then said Rogers swiped his food. Dowling also said he threw the cheese, the variety of which was not specified, at Rogers.

Dowling finally said he threw a tray of food at Rogers after Rogers kept yelling at him.

Rogers, who has prior battery convictions, was arrested on two felony charges, while Dowling was arrested on a single felony charge and a single misdemeanor charge.

Filed under: Abuse,Alcohol,Bad Mother,Bizzarre,Controversy,Dispute,Drunk,Dumb,Florida Nut,WTF? — floridaduh @ 1:36 pm

A Flagler County woman is accused of drinking for nine hours and threatening her stepson with his pellet gun when he tried to prevent her from polishing off his liquor.

sfl-flduh-stepson-booze-9-hours-20140918-001Laurie Ann Marlow, 55, was arrested at 7:15 p.m. Wednesday and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after deputies were called to her home on County Road 3006 in western Flagler County to investigate a disturbance, a sheriff’s report states.

A deputy reported Marlow appeared to be under the influence, the report states. She said she had been arguing with her 21-year-old stepson, Taylor Marlow, and that he and his brother, William, 25, left the house with two rifles, including one that they had fought over.

“He advised that Laurie had found liquor that he had hidden in his room and that she had consumed a large amount of it,” the report states.

The brothers then “heard a loud banging noise coming from within the house” so Taylor Marlow ran to the backyard and entered through a rear entrance that leads directly to his bedroom, according to the report.

“As Taylor opened the door he observed that Laurie had broken down the locked door and was grabbing his pellet gun,” the deputy reported. “Laurie proceeded to turn around and point the gun into Taylor’s face.”

He told the deputy the barrel of the gun was about a foot away from his face and he believed she would shoot him, the report states.

Taylor Marlow’s brother, William Marlow told the deputy he did not see what happened from outside the home but heard his brother say, “Are you kidding me right now? Are you seriously pulling a gun on me?”

William Marlow said he then heard the two wrestling over the gun.

Taylor Marlow got the gun away from his stepmother and his brother took it from him and hid it in the car, the report states.

Taylor Marlow told the deputy it’s not the first time a situation like this has occurred.

“He advised that Laurie had pulled a real firearm on their father, and she hits their father on a regular basis,” the deputy reported.

Laurie Marlow was booked into the Flagler County Detention Facility where she remained Thursday on $2,000 bail.

 

Woman Set Boyfriend Ablaze, Claimed He Was Participating In “Fire Challenge” Stunt September 11, 2014

A Florida woman arrested for setting her boyfriend on fire after dousing him with rubbing alcohol claimed that the victim had been participating in the so-called fire challenge when “things went awry,” police report.

necoleandmarcosAccording to cops, Marcos Fuentes suffered burns to twenty percent of his body early Sunday morning in the Bradenton home he shares with Necole Stephens, 35.

As Fuentes was being loaded into an emergency medical helicopter, he told Manatee County Sheriff’s Officer deputies that Stephens became jealous when she saw him texting on his phone. Fuentes added that Stephens “threw ‘medical’ alcohol all over him before igniting his clothes on fire with a lighter.”

Stephens, who was not home when cops arrived, was later contacted by phone by deputies, who reported that Stephens claimed Fuentes “was participating in the ‘alcohol challenge’ and things went awry.” Stephens added that she left the residence because she was “scared.”

Stephens, investigators noted, declined repeated requests to return to the home and provide “proof that she did nothing wrong.” She was subsequently located at another Bradenton residence and arrested. Stephens is locked up in lieu of $15,000 on a felony aggravated assault charge.

Fuentes suffered second-degree burns “on his left side from his shoulder down past his waist,” reported deputies. Stephens and Fuentes are pictured above in a Facebook photo uploaded to her page in late-June.

The “fire challenge,” which has been popularized by Facebook and YouTube videos, involves a participant pouring rubbing alcohol on their skin and then setting the liquid on fire. The flames are then supposed to be quickly extinguished. However, many individuals have suffered serious burns as a result of the dangerous online trend.

 

Woman accused of committing solo sex act on motorcycle in open garage September 9, 2014

A woman who Ormond Beach police say was committing a sex act atop a motorcycle with her garage door open was arrested after the activity was witnessed by a 13-year-old boy, the child’s mother and another neighbor, an arrest report shows.

sfl-flduh-sex-act-motorcycle-20140908-001Karen Marie Dilworth was charged with lewd/lascivious exhibition by a person over 18 on a person under 16, after the incident in front of her house on Pine Cone Trail in The Trails subdivision on Saturday night, a report shows.

The 50-year-old Dilworth, who denied she committed a sex act on a motorcycle, told Ormond Beach police that she was in her garage smoking and drinking beers, the report shows.

But at least two of her neighbors said otherwise, one of them calling 9-1-1 and yelling at Dilworth to shut her garage door.

The boy and his mother were arriving at their residence on Pine Cone Trail when they spotted Dilworth — the front of her half-nude body on the bike was facing the street — in her garage, the report shows. The shocked mother called out to her other neighbor and that neighbor in turn yelled out to Dilworth, the report shows.

Dilworth was taken to the Volusia County Branch Jail and was released after she posted $1,000 bail. When reached by phone Monday, Dilworth declined comment.

 

Jury Rejects Man’s Claim He Was Sleeping When He Molested Girl August 28, 2014

Caleb-RuhCaleb Ruh, a 29-year-old Flagler County man accused two years ago of molesting a 7-year-old girl in his care, was found guilty of lewd and lascivious molestation in a jury trial that ended late this afternoon.

Ruh faces life in prison and will be designated a sexual predator. He will be sentenced on Sept. 29 by Flagler County Circuit Judge J. David Walsh.

Ruh was represented by public defender Regina Nunnally, who argued at trial that Ruh suffered from “sexsomnia” and committed the acts while asleep.

Susan Davis writing for WebMD summarizes the disorder this way: “Also called ‘sleep sex,’ sexsomnia is a type of parasomnia, where the brain is caught in transition between sleeping and waking states. As with other parasomnias — including sleepwalking, sleep talking, and, yes, sleep driving — someone who is sleep sexing can seem fully awake and aware, even as he or she is masturbating, or fondling, initiating intercourse with, or even sexually assaulting a bed partner. But he or she truly is asleep. In fact, a diagnosis of sexsomnia has been used as a defense in several rape and molestation cases in recent years.”

In Ruh’s case, a jury of five men and one women didn’t buy it. The jury issued the verdict before Walsh after deliberating 90 minutes.

Ruh, who lives in a part of southern Flagler County that has Ormond Beach addresses, was arrested on Aug. 31, 2012, following a Department of Children and Families investigation earlier into an incident that took place July 1.

Ruh, according to his arrest report at the time, had been left in charge of the 7 year old girl while her mother and a 1-year-old child went to the store. The girl told her mother that Ruh had fallen asleep on the couch, then at one point had called out the girl’s name, grabbed the girl, and tried to kiss and touch her. The girl tried to awaken Ruh, who would later say that he’d taken Xanax before falling asleep. Xanax is an anti-anxiety prescription.

The girl later confronted Ruh about it. He refused to talk about it and claimed that the incident couldn’t have happened. The girl would later tell her mother that on another occasion, Ruh had blindfolded her and put things in her mouth, with the object of the “game” being that she had to guess what it was. The child’s mother took both her children to Broward County, where, the report states, a Child Protective Team concluded that there had been “two acts of sexual violence.”

Ruh continued to insist that he did not remember what had taken place on July 1, as he did at trial.

He was initially booked on $200,000 bail. He did not have a good record while in jail, and faced additional charges, such as obstructing police and violating jail rules two or more times, a case still pending in county court, and a battery charge, what would have been a third-degree felony, though the charge was dismissed.
