Ocala woman jailed after man shows Marion County sheriff’s deputies video of attack

Alysha Ra’chelle Corrigan

An Ocala woman was arrested Tuesday night after a man claimed she had recently attacked him.

Deputies were called to a home in the 5400 block of NE Jacksonville Rd. and when they arrived, the man claimed that 29-year-old Alysha Ra’chelle Corrigan had battered him a few weeks ago. He provided deputies with a video showing a woman identified as Corrigan striking him several times, a sheriff’s office report states.

The man claimed that in January 2020 he and Corrigan got an apartment together. During the confrontation, he said, Corrigan grabbed his wrists and told him he “was not going anywhere because they were not done talking.” He said Corrigan then blocked the doorway, preventing him from exiting the room, the report says.

Deputies observed the video and reported that Corrigan could be seen blocking the door, then stepping toward the man and raising her right hand. Deputies also reported hearing the audio of “what sounds like several strikes to the victim,” the report says.

Deputies made contact with Corrigan at her residence at 1632 NE 71st Pl. in Ocala. After being read her rights, she said she knew of the video and the incident the man told deputies about. She said the video was taken in May and she admitted to hitting the man, “but only after he pushed her into the door,” the report says.

Corrigan was placed under arrest and transported to the Marion County Jail, where she was charged with domestic battery. She was released Wednesday night on her own recognizance and is due in court Aug. 25 at 8 a.m. to answer to the charge.
