An Ocala woman was charged with domestic battery after a victim reported she threw food at him and punched him in the face during an argument.
A Marion County Sheriff’s deputy responded to the incident location at SW 33rd Terrace on June 5.
The victim reported before he returned home, he got into a verbal argument with 20-year-old Cassie Bagley. The victim reported the argument started outside when they were in Bagley’s vehicle. The victim stated he attempted to remove his belongings from the car, but Bagley started driving as he was in the doorway. The victim said he was able to get out of the car and go inside his home but Bagley exited the vehicle and followed him inside. The victim said the argument continued and he recorded Bagley on his phone. The victim claimed Bagley grabbed a brown bag of food and threw it at him before punching him in the nose. The victim said Bagley followed him in the bathroom, and he was forced to push her away, according to the sheriff’s report.

The video also revealed Bagley yelling “No you just hit me,” before grabbing her cell phone from the counter and calling her sister. The video also confirmed that Bagley threw a bag at the victim before punching him and stating, “I hate you for doing this [expletive] to me.”
