Coffee pot-throwing woman jailed after drunken spat

Peggy Ann Pfeiffer

An Ocala woman was arrested after she allegedly threw a coffee pot at a man who left her at a bar during an argument.

Peggy Ann Pfeiffer, 53, of S. Magnolia Avenue, was charged with aggravated domestic battery after the incident, which happened Sunday evening at the residence where she and the victim live.

Pfeiffer, who reported the incident, was very excited and intoxicated when the Marion County sheriff’s deputy arrived. She said the victim pulled her hair and shoved coffee grounds in her face and mouth. Pfeiffer then became uncooperative and it was difficult for the deputy to get a clear account of what happened, according to the sheriff’s office report.

Pfeiffer said she and the victim were arguing at a bar and he left her there and she had to get a ride home. She said when she got home, the victim continued to argue with her so she thew a coffee pot at his head because she wanted him to be quiet. Pfeiffer said the victim then picked up the coffee grounds, pushed her to the ground and started rubbing them in her nose, mouth, eyes, etc., the report said.

Pfeiffer said the victim was on top of her and when he let her up, she went to the bathroom to call law enforcement and he followed her. She said they continued to argue until the deputy arrived. The deputy observed Pfeiffer was covered in dirt and had coffee grounds in her eyes and teeth. The deputy also observed redness on Pfeiffer’s arms and neck, but she said nothing else physical happened and those injuries happened when she fell in the barn the previous day, according to the report.

The victim told the deputy he left Pfeiffer at the bar because they were arguing and when she came home, he was trying to apologize to her. He said she punched him in the eye and threw a coffee pot at him, striking him in the back. The victim said he then threw coffee grounds at her, the report said.

The victim said he was never physical with Pfeiffer and that she was throwing coffee grounds around. The deputy observed redness on the victim’s right eye and cheek. The victim was also intoxicated, according to the report.

Pfeiffer was taken to the Marion County Jail, where she remained Monday afternoon.  No bond information was available. She will appear in Marion County Court on Dec. 15.
