Belleview man jailed after violent attack at campground over cut water hose

Nicholas Keith Chubbs

A Belleview man was arrested Sunday after a bleeding campground dweller claimed he was attacked with a crowbar over a cut water hose.

Belleview Police officers responded to the Silver Oaks Campground, located at 10366 S.E. U.S. Hwy. 441, and when they arrived, the man said that 35-year-old Nicholas Keith Chubbs yelled at him and then attacked him, a sheriff’s office report states.

The man claimed that Chubbs hit him three times with a crowbar – in the face, the chest and on his right arm. He said two people intervened and stopped the attack and Chubbs walked back to his trailer. He added that he believed he would have died if no one helped him, the report says, adding that the man had cuts on his face, chest and right arm.

Chubbs told officers he was “tired” of the man cutting his water hose and said he became upset and confronted the man. He said a fight started and he struck the man in the face with a “tire iron.” He showed officers the weapon and was then placed under arrest.

Chubbs was transported to the Marion County Jail and charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. He was being held on $10,000 bond and is due in court Aug. 4 at 9 a.m.
