Naked Silver Springs man urinates on himself during fourth battery arrest of 2020

Austin Kameron Mayer

A naked Silver Springs man was arrested on battery charges for the fourth time in 2020 after he reportedly fought with a man and woman, resisted arrest and urinated all over himself during a drunken display last Wednesday night.

Austin Kameron Mayer, 25, was charged with domestic battery by strangulation, simple battery, and resisting an officer without violence after the incident. He had a blood-alcohol level nearly five times the legal limit, according to the Marion County Sheriff’s Office report.

Mayer was previously charged with domestic battery by strangulation and battery on May 6, battery (second or subsequent offense) and criminal mischief on Sept. 13, and two counts of battery on Oct. 3. He was also arrested in November for failing to appear in court, according to Marion County Jail records.

In the latest incident, a sheriff’s deputy arrived and saw Mayer shove the male victim from behind while he was walking away. The deputy ran upstairs and saw Mayer with the victim in a rear-necked chokehold. He had his legs wrapped around the victim’s hips and was using his forearm to press on his throat. The deputy ad to forcefully remove Mayer from the victim, the report said.

Mayer placed one hand in front of his body to keep the deputy from restraining and handcuffing him. The deputy took Mayer to the ground and eventually gained control of his right hand to place him in handcuffs, according to the report.

A second deputy arrived and helped place Mayer in the patrol vehicle. Mayer was nude and could not hold himself up. He stumbled and urinated on himself as he walked towards the vehicle. His eyes were bloodshot and he smelled of alcohol, the report said.

The female victim said she saw Mayer drinking and wanted to leave the situation because she knows how he reacts when he drinks. She said while she was trying to leave the room, Mayer pushed her on the back and pulled her hair to try and get her to stay. The victim said she didn’t remember much of what happened after that. The deputy did not observe any injuries on the victim and she declined medical attention, according to the report.

The male victim said he went to help the female victim get away from Mayer. He said he was keeping them separated until Mayer came up from behind and shoved him. The victim said he and Mayer ended up on the ground, where Mayer placed him in a rear-necked chokehold until the deputy arrived to help. He did not have any visible injuries and refused medical attention, the report said.

Mayer was taken to Ocala Regional Medical Center, where is blood-alcohol level was measured at .38 percent. While at the hospital, Mayer continuously asked the deputy to release him and said he didn’t do anything wrong. He kept trying to get out of the hospital bed but was unsuccessful, according to the report.

Mayer was later taken to the Marion County Jail, where he’s being held on $7,000 bond. He’s due to appear in Marion County Court on Jan. 5, 2021.
