An Ocala woman previously charged with domestic battery was arrested again after she allegedly threw a cell phone and struck the same female victim in the face.
Andrea Pallas, 57, was charged with felony domestic battery after the incident, which happened around 2 a.m. Thursday. The previous domestic battery incident was in October 2019, according to jail records.
Marion County sheriff’s deputies responded to Pallas and the victim’s residence, where they found the victim with a bleeding laceration on her forehead between the eyes. She had a paper towel in her hand and dry blood on her hands and face, according to the sheriff’s office report.
The victim said she and Pallas had an argument and that Pallas threw a cell phone, which hit her in the head and caused her injury. An EMS responder told the deputy that the victim, who was taken to a local hospital, would need stitches, the report said.
Pallas told the deputy that she and the victim argued and they threw stuff at each other. She said she threw the victim’s cell phone back at her and it hit her in the head, causing the laceration. Pallas said the victim did the same thing to her about a month ago, causing her to bleed, but she didn’t report it. She showed a scar on her head near her right temple and pictures of the injury on her tablet, according to the report.
Pallas was taken to the Marion County Jail and released Friday on $2,000 bond. She’s due to appear in Marion County Court on April 28.
