Ocklawaha man jailed on domestic battery charge

Douglas William Reeb

A 25-year-old Ocklawaha man was arrested on a domestic battery charge Thursday after he allegedly shoved and grabbed a woman during an argument about how she disciplines her son.

A Marion County sheriff’s deputy performed a well-being check at a residence on SE 192nd Avenue after an anonymous 911 caller said she received a call from the victim, who was crying before the call was disconnected.

The victim was hysterical when the deputy arrived. She said she and Douglas William Reeb were arguing because he doesn’t believe she disciplines her oldest son. The victim said told her to leave. She said she picked up her infant child and was going to get the other child to leave the residence, according to the sheriff’s office report.

The victim said Reeb grabbed the child from her arms and pushed her into the refrigerator and wall several times. She said he also grabbed her arms and squeezed the sides of her neck. The victim said she tried to call Reeb’s mother, but he took her phone from her. The deputy did not observe any visible injuries on the victim, the report said.

After being read his Miranda rights, Reeb told the deputy he and the victim got into an argument and he yelled at her a lot. He said the victim tried to leave, but he stood in front of her to keep her from going. Reeb said he gently took the child from the victim’s arms. He said he only grabbed the victim’s arms gently and guided her to the couch to have her sit down, according to the report.

Reeb was taken to the Marion County Jail, where he was released Saturday on $100 bond. He will answer to the charge in Marion County Court on Oct. 23.
