A 911 dispatcher calmly gathered details from the Deltona woman who claimed she was just attacked by her 500-pound boyfriend — a belligerent man deputies later said was simply too big to fit into a patrol car.
“Right now, he’s not wearing anything,” the woman said Sunday from house she rents on Jutland Street on Sunday.
“He’s nude?” the dispatcher asked.
Hendrix, 45, of Apopka was in the bathroom, freshly showered and naked, when a deputy arrived.
He agreed to the officer’s request to put his clothes on.
But then Hendrix began throwing his weight around — again, a report says.
Deputies cuffed him but Hendrix resisted, refusing to walk out the house and falling to the ground, forcing a deputy to drag him out of the house. He also kicked a deputy, a report says.
“Hendrix was to large to put in a patrol vehicle,” a deputy wrote in a report.
A prisoner transport van was called in and used to take Hendrix to the Volusia County Branch Jail in Daytona Beach, said Gary Davidson, a spokesman for the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office.
Hendrix is accused of attacking the 42-year-old woman, including poking her in the chest, slapping her in the face and shoulder and spitting in her face.
He also punched a hole in a wall and destroyed a chair, she said in her 911 call.
Hendrix was charged with simple battery (dating violence), criminal mischief, battery on a law enforcement officer, and resisting arrest without violence.
