Berserk Silver Springs man behind bars after victim reports rampage

Charles Edward Harrington

A Silver Springs man was jailed Tuesday night after going on a rampage when his lady friend confronted him about a phone conversation he was having.

The victim told Marion County sheriff’s deputies that 45-year-old Charles Edward Harrington had been drinking and got mad and started screaming at her. She said Harrington threw several items at her that were on top of a dresser in their residence, a sheriff’s office report states.

The victim said she was standing on the right side of a bed when Harrington started throwing things at her. She said he moved into the living room and picked up a television set and smashed it on the floor. The victim also told deputies that Harrington was “coming at her” and she was in fear that he was going to hit her, so she ran into a bedroom and locked the door, the report says, adding that the victim was “unsure” if Harrington placed his hands on her.

Deputies reported that the bedroom where the incident took place had items scattered on the right side of the bed where the victim said she was standing. They then spoke with Harrington, who said he didn’t place his hands on the victim. He admitted that he had been drinking and broke the TV set in the living room but denied throwing anything at the victim, the report states.

Harrington was placed under arrest and transported to the Marion County Jail, where he was charged with domestic assault. He was being held on no bond and his next court date hasn’t yet been set, jail records show.
