Hosed off

6:27 p.m. — First block of Treetop Circle, Ormond Beach, Flagler County

Battery. An Ormond Beach man was arrested on a battery charge after he allegedly sprayed a woman with a garden hose.

Sheriff’s Office deputies were originally called by the man’s wife, who said that a woman pointed a gun at the man, according to the man’s arrest report. The man told deputies that the woman was on his property.

The woman — an arborist hired by the man’s neighbor — told deputies that she was surveying trees on the neighboring home’s property when the man came outside and sprayed her through the fence with water from a garden hose.

She yelled at him to stop, but he continued, the report said. She began walking to her work truck, but the man approached her “in an aggressive manner,” screaming at her.

The woman felt threatened and pulled her firearm from the truck, clipping it to her waistband behind her back, the report said. 

The man went back inside and both parties called 911.

Deputies arrested the man and took him to jail.

Steal of a deal

Residential burglary. Someone stole a matching appliance set from an under-construction home in Palm Coast.

A matching Whirlpool stove and microwave, valued at $1,000, went missing from the work site over the Fourth of July holiday, according to an incident report. 

The area superintendent told a Sheriff’s Office deputy that he'd last visited the property on June 29.

The deputy surveyed the property and found no sign of forced entry, and there were no cameras in the area for surveillance footage.
