An Ocala woman accused of domestic battery said the alleged victim had better be gone when she gets out of jail and threatened to bash his head in.
The victim told a Marion County sheriff’s deputy Monday morning that he and Sherry Ann Lapole, 48, were arguing about a lost cat and she threatened him with a “night stick.” The victim said he took the stick from Lapole and was going to throw it in the woods so she couldn’t find it and hit him with it when Lapole tackled him to the ground, according to the sheriff’s office report.
The deputy observed the victim’s right eye was swollen and he had a cut on the inside of his left ear and small scratches on his right eye and wrist. Lapole said she never touched the victim. She was aggressive when talking to the deputy and made the threatening statements about the victim, the report said.
Lapole was released Wednesday from the Marion County Jail on $150 bond and awaits an Aug. 4 appearance in court.
