Foul-mouthed Belleview man admits to pushing woman

Scott Edward Brown

A 41-year-old Belleview man was arrested last week after he admitted to pushing a woman and telling her to “go (expletive deleted) herself” during a drunken argument.

A Marion County sheriff’s deputy and a Belleview Police officer responded to the incident location shortly before midnight March 22, and the victim told them she and Scott Edward Brown had been drinking alcoholic beverages and arguing that evening, according to the sheriff’s office report.

The victim said the argument turned physical when Brown shoved her. She said she shoved Brown back to try and get away from him. The deputy observed small fresh scratches on the victim’s left forearm and palm-sized areas of redness on both forearms. As the investigation continued, the victim became reluctant to provide any other information, the report said.

The victim’s mother, who is the one who called law enforcement, said she heard the victim screaming moments before the physical altercation occurred inside the home. The witness said she observed the victim on the floor inside the residence with Brown standing over and punching her. She said she put herself between the couple multiple times to separate them, according to the report.

The witness said Brown shouted expletives at her and left the residence as she called 911. Brown was apprehended by a sheriff’s office K-9 deputy in a field southeast of the incident location, the report said.

Brown admitted to pushing the victim multiple times and getting “flustered” during the altercation. He denied standing over her and punching her forearms. Brown said he believes he told the victim to “go (expletive deleted) herself,” according to the report.

Brown was taken to the Marion County Jail, where he was released March 25 on $500 bond. He’ll appear in Marion County Court on May 7.
