Belleview man nabbed after fight with woman who woke him up looking for cigarettes

Bradley R. Beaudet

A Belleview man is accused of shoving a woman after she woke him up asking where the cigarettes were.

The victim told a Marion County sheriff’s deputy that Bradley R. Beaudet, 26, was sleeping around 1 a.m. Sunday and when she woke him up and asked where the cigarettes were. She said Beaudet immediately became irate and started yelling, according to the sheriff’s office report.

The victim said she walked to the kitchen to grab the debit card, and when she threw it on the ground, Beaudet got mad and “shoved” her with his shoulder into her chest. She said there was plenty of room between her and the counter for him to go around her. The deputy did not observe any injuries to the victim, the report said.

Beaudet said he was upset because he was awakened by the victim. He told the deputy if he bumped her, he bumped her. He then said he told her he was leaving and she was blocking his way and refused to move, so he had no choice but to shove her, according to the report.

Beaudet then said he never touched the victim at all. The deputy observed he was intoxicated, the report said.

The victim’s mother, who is the one who reported the incident, said she was in the other room when she heard Beaudet and the victim arguing in the kitchen. She said she heard what sounded like a loud “slap,” which sounded like skin-to-skin contact, according to the report.

The victim’s mother said she heard the victim say, “I can’t believe you hit me again,” and that’s when she called law enforcement. She said she never heard Beaudet ask the victim to get out of the way, nor did he ever say he was trying to leave, the report said.

Beaudet was taken to the Marion County Jail, where he was released Tuesday on his own recognizance. He’ll answer to the domestic battery charge in Marion County Court on Oct. 23.
