Silver Springs man jailed after nasty domestic spat over vehicle

Nathan Edward Pusey

A Silver Springs man was arrested on a simple domestic battery charge Wednesday after he allegedly punched a woman who wouldn’t let him use her vehicle.

A Marion County sheriff’s deputy responded at around 1:30 p.m. to the Lindale Mobile Home Park, 5431 NE 35th Street, where an anonymous caller reported there was a woman screaming for help and a man hitting her. The caller said she saw the incident and described the man as wearing a navy shirt and black shorts and the female as wearing a light blue tank top and jeans, according to the sheriff’s office report.

Upon arrival, the deputy made contact with the victim, who was standing outside a trailer and arguing with a male later identified as 36-year-old Nathan Edward Pusey. The victim and Pusey matched the descriptions provided by the caller, the report said.

The victim told the deputy that Pusey became upset with her because she wouldn’t let him take her vehicle. She said she wouldn’t let him use the car because he was going to take it to buy illegal drugs. The victim said she was in the driver’s seat and Pusey was in the passenger’s seat when he reached over and punched her in the side, near her right hip, according to the report.

Pusey was read his Miranda rights and said he didn’t want to answer any questions. He was taken to the Marion County Jail, where he was being held Friday on $500 bond. He’s set to appear in Marion County Court on Oct. 2.
