An Ocala woman was arrested on domestic battery and drug charges after she allegedly hit a man with a broomstick while he was calling law enforcement about her.
Heather Marie Sills, 33, was charged Monday afternoon with domestic battery, possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia. The victim told a Marion County sheriff’s deputy that he and Sills got into an argument about pizza, and that Sills made comments about overdosing on drugs, according to the sheriff’s office report.
The victim said he told Sills he was going to contact law enforcement about the comments she made. He said he was walking out the door of his residence and in the process of calling 911 when Sills hit him in the neck with a broomstick. The deputy observed red marks on the left side of the victim’s neck, the report said.
Sills told the deputy that she knew the victim was calling law enforcement when she hit him and that’s why she did it. Another deputy, who had consent to go into Sills’ purse to retrieve her photo ID, found in plain view a clear container with a green leafy substance and a multi-colored glass pipe with a green leafy substance in it, according to the report.
The green leafy substance from the clear container and glass pipe field tested positive for marijuana. Sills was taken to the Marion County Jail, where she’s being held on $1,500. She’s scheduled to appear in Marion County Court on Feb. 13.
