Weirsdale woman arrested after nasty spat with man

Jennifer Lynn Paglione

A Weirsdale woman was arrested recently after she allegedly slapped a man who threw her belongings out of a vehicle and onto the ground.

Jennifer Lynn Paglione, 35, was charged with simple domestic battery after the incident, which happened last Wednesday night. Paglione, who contacted law enforcement, told a Marion County sheriff’s deputy that the victim punched, pushed and body slammed her multiple times. The deputy observed that Paglione had dirt on the back of her shirt and on the back/buttocks area of her jean shorts, according to the sheriff’s office report.

The deputy observed that Paglione was acting in an erratic manner consistent with possible illegal substance use. She later admitted to using methamphetamine earlier in the day, the report said.

Meanwhile, a sheriff’s office corporal conducted a traffic stop on the victim, who said he and Paglione had been at a friend’s house. The corporal reported that the victim was sitting on the passenger side of his friend’s vehicle and Paglione was outside the vehicle as they argued, according to the report.

The corporal said the victim was holding a box of Paglione’s belongings on his lap when he threw the box onto the ground. The corporal reported that Paglione slapped the victim on the right side of the face. The victim got out of the vehicle after being smacked, and Paglione continued trying to attack him until being brought to the ground by the victim, the report said.

The victim had two red marks and scratches on his chin and a cut on his left eyebrow that he said was from when he subdued Paglione on the ground. Paglione refused to say anything else about the incident, according to the report.

Paglione was taken to the Marion County Jail, where she was released on $500 bond. She’s scheduled to appear in Marion County Court on April 22.
