Ocala man resists arrest on domestic battery charges

Guadalupe Aguayo Plascencia

An Ocala man accused of strangling, scratching and spitting on a woman was also charged with fighting the deputies who arrested him Sunday night.

Guadalupe Aguayo Plascencia, 36, was charged with domestic battery by strangulation, simple domestic battery, battery on an officer, resisting an officer with violence, and resisting an officer without violence.

When Marion County sheriff’s deputies arrived at the residence, Plascencia came out in an aggressive manner and refused to comply with deputies’ commands to take his left hand out of his pocket. He balled his wrists and actively resisted as deputies placed him in handcuffs, according to the sheriff’s office report.

Plascencia remained aggressive, “bowed up” and tried to pull away as he was patted down for weapons. A deputy conducted a wrist maneuver to maintain control. Plascencia grabbed the deputy’s right wrist with his left hand during the struggle, digging his nails into the deputy’s skin and refusing to let go. The deputy sustained a small laceration, the report said.

The victim said Plascencia was drunk when she came home. She said he was verbally abusing her children, calling them “bitches” in Spanish. The victim said Plascencia then grabbed her by the left arm and pinched her skin. The deputy observed a large red mark on her arm that appeared to corroborate her statement, according to the report.

The victim said Plascencia then grabbed her throat with his hand and squeezed it, then dug his nails into her neck and pulled away. The deputy observed a large scratch on the right side of the victim’s neck that also appeared to corroborate her story. The victim said Plascencia spat on her at least four times, the report said.

Plascencia was taken to the Marion County Jail, where he remains held on $17,000 bond. He’ll appear in Marion County Court on March 31.
