An Ocala woman with an extensive arrest history is back in jail after she allegedly kneed a man with cancer in the groin when he made her wait for him too long.
Tiffaney Renate Lindsey, 36, of 5265 SE 31st St., was charged with domestic battery (second or subsequent offense) after the incident, which happened on Nov. 2.
Lindsey has been arrested 10 times under two different last names since 2013, most recently for retail petit theft on Nov. 30. She was jailed in May of this year after a violent altercation in a gas station and in May 2018 after a fight with a woman in a vehicle.
Lindsey was standing near her vehicle when a Marion County sheriff’s deputy arrived at the incident location. She said she and the victim were at the residence to pick up some items, and he was inside for a long time while she wanted to leave, according to the sheriff’s office report.
Lindsey said she walked to the front door of the home and called for the victim, and he answered back that he wasn’t ready to leave. She said the victim started to yell at her and she yelled back, but nothing physical happened, the report said.
Another deputy spoke with the victim, who said Lindsey became upset at him and wanted to leave the residence, but he wasn’t ready to go. He said Lindsey yelled obscenities at him and struck him several times in his arms and face. The victim said Lindsey then struck him in the groin and leg area by kneeing him and kicking him multiple times, according to the report.
The victim said he has cancer and bruises easily. Deputies observed bruising on both of the victim’s arms as well as both sides of his inner thigh area. Neighbors who witnessed the incident from across the street said Lindsey was trying to provoke the victim by telling him to batter her. They said they saw Lindsey use her knee and foot to strike the victim multiple times, the report said.
Lindsey was taken to the Marion County Jail, where she’s being held on $5,000 bond. She’ll appear in Marion County Court on Jan. 7.
