“Don’t bring a machete to a pork chop fight” October 23, 2014

An argument over pork chops turned violent and bloody between relatives Monday night.

635495145535312385-porkFellsmere police arrested Billy Wall for stabbing his nephew with a butcher knife two times in the abdomen. The two were apparently arguing over how many pork chops each person would get to eat.

Officers responded to the victim’s house on Lincoln Street just before eight o’clock. The victim, Charles Williams, came stumbling out the front door as police arrived. Wall was tracked down and arrested at his neighbor’s house a block away.

That neighbor, Carolyn Bibbs, told WPBF 25 News reporter John Dzenitis that Wall came to her door covered in blood and asking for a change of clothes.

“He was drenched with blood because I seen it all down his leg,” Bibbs said. ”I ain’t givin’ him no clothes to put on.”

Police said Wall claimed self-defense as he was being put in handcuffs.

“He kept saying ‘I stabbed him’,” Bibbs said. “He say, ‘He try to get a machete at me and cut me with a machete and I stabbed him.”

Wall was arrested on aggravated battery charges. The Indian River County Sheriff’s Office processed the scene and officers recovered the machete. The knife has yet to be recovered.

Family members told WPBF 25 News that Williams had to undergo emergency surgery because of liver damage. Thankfully, the blade barely missed an artery and Williams is expected to survive, according to his family.

 

Cold, angry woman attacked man in blanket battle October 16, 2014

DeLand police rushed to a home where neighbors reported a woman had been screaming outside for 15 minutes only to find out she was fighting over a blanket, according to an arrest report.

sfl-flduh-blanket-battle-20141015-001Officers found Emma Campbell at 4:14 a.m. Tuesday at 729 Lindley Blvd. and, after an investigation, arrested and charged her with battery causing bodily harm.

Campbell, 20, of Wesley Chapel, left several long, deep scratch injuries on her boyfriend, Alexander McCall’s chest, back and upper right thigh, a report shows.

Police determined that the fracas was over a blanket. Campbell and McCall, 20, in a relationship for three years, were breaking up and could not agree on who was going to use the blanket Tuesday night.

That prompted a fight and a tug of war over the blanket as there was a dispute over the temperature setting of the air conditioning, police said.

Campbell then attacked McCall with her fingernails, police said.

“Due to Campbell’s aggressive attacks with her nails, McCall shoved her off of him at which time she landed on the floor,” officers wrote in their report.

Campbell claimed McCall cut her lips but police did not see any injuries on her, the report said. Campbell was released Tuesday from the Volusia County Branch Jail on her own recognizance.

An Ellenton man was charged with impersonating a law enforcement officer Sunday, according to the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office.

sfl-flduh-phony-officer-bar-20141013-001Adrian Q. Culpepper, 26, was arrested at 3:26 a.m. Sunday outside Three Oaks Bar & Grill, 3503 U.S. 301, Ellenton. According to a report, Culpepper walked into the bar and began to tell everyone that he is a sheriff and threatened to take them to jail.

“He talked about his ‘cop buddies’ and he will win,” a report states.

Deputies said Culpepper then hit a patron and was told to leave by another patron. According to a report, Culpepper then punched a man, giving the victim a bloody nose. The victim, who declined to press charges, tried to escort Culpepper out of the bar. According to a report, Culpepper again told them that he was a sheriff. He stood in the middle of U.S. 301 as a sheriff drove by in a marked car.

Culpepper was released from Manatee County jail the same day on $1,500 bond, according to the sheriff’s website.

 

Bouncers give tourist beatdown inside strip club, steal his jewelry

A former Flagler County sheriff’s deputy is among four men charged with beating and stealing from a customer at Lollipops strip club in Daytona Beach.

sfl-flduh-bouncers-tourist-strip-club-20141013-001Daytona Beach police arrested Jermine Riley, 40, former deputy Michael Kramer, 35, and Brent Rose, 42, Saturday night as Local 6 cameras were rolling. All three are employees of the club, while a manager, Joseph Victorelli, 47, turned himself in at the Volusia County Jail on Sunday.

All four men have since bonded out of jail.

According to police, surveillance cameras show the four men severely beating 55-year-old Thomas Volz, who was visiting from Omaha, Nebraska. Police said in the video it is also clear the men stole several pieces of jewelry from Volz.

“He gets punched in the face, they knock him down to the ground and they stomp him. They give him a good old-fashioned beat down,” said Chief Mike Chitwood.

According to attorney Brett Hartley, who represents Lollipops, Volz was refusing to pay for $200 in lap dances he received. Volz said he never got the dances and the employees beat him up in an effort to intimidate him into paying.

Hartley said Volz was repeatedly asked to leave, but instead threatened the employees and kept trying to come back into the club. Hartley said Volz at one point appeared to physically challenge the bouncers and that Volz spit in the face of one of the bouncers, which initiated the physical confrontation.

In a phone conversation with Local 6, Volz said he will move forward in an effort to prosecute his alleged attackers. He said he was beaten “without regard for human life,” suffering a broken nose, sore ribs and a concussion.

 

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.

 

Hot-blooded: Woman smeared red paint on herself, called 911

A Flagler County woman is accused of threatening her boyfriend with a knife and then putting fake blood on herself to get him arrested, according to investigators.

sfl-flduh-assaulted-fake-blood-20140922-001Deputies said Emily Johne, 24, held a knife to the victim’s cheek and threatened to stab him in his sleep at the home on Brunswick Lane in Palm Coast Thursday.

Johne called 911 and said the victim was drunk and had beaten her, but when deputies arrived they determined the victim had not been drinking or hurt Johne.

Deputies said Johne had smeared red paint on her ear and chest and told them it was blood. She was not injured.

Investigators said Johne became violent after her boyfriend confronted her about naked pictures she had sent to another man and said she was “incapable of love.”

 

Woman bodybuilder dubbed “Little Monster” freaks out at party September 16, 2014

Dani Reardon screamed when police arrived.

sfl-flduh-bodybuilder-little-monster-20140915-001Then the award-winning female bodybuilder, described online as “jacked, vascular, & ripped,” cracked the windshield of her boyfriend’s pickup with a kick, police said.

Later, the 24-year-old slammed her head repeatedly into the cage of an Edgewood patrol vehicle as she was taken to the Orange County Jail, a report said.

Reardon — whose body reeked of alcohol — was charged with resisting arrest without violence and battery (domestic violence) early Sunday, police said.

The alleged victim was her live-in boyfriend of three years, Ian Schofield, who said he didn’t want to press charges.

Reardon, also known online as “Little Monstar” is a pro competitor for the International Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness, meaning she’s won at least one regional contest in a specific weight class.

That happened in November 2012, when she was declared a Class A Winner at the National Physique Committee competition in Atlanta.

“Danielle has very pretty lines,” the judges said, according to the NPC website. “She needs to improve her conditioning at the next level.”

On her website, Reardon expresses her love for posing and optimism for the future, saying she is on her way to the “big stage.” But she went to the big house after police got a disturbance call just before 2 a.m. Sunday in Edgewood, south of downtown Orlando, at a house on Oak Lynn Drive.
