You shall not (tres)pass

1:28 p.m. — 6000 block of State Road 100, Flagler County

Trespass. A homeless man was arrested after he was found lying in the middle of a service road, blocking traffic.

The Sheriff’s Office received multiple calls about a man lying in the middle of a service road near a fast-food restaurant, according to an arrest report. The man was lying on the right side of the road, partially obstructing traffic.

The deputy who responded to the calls recognized the man as a local homeless man who deputies trespassed from seven different parcels on that road just one week prior, the arrest report said. The property line of one parcel extended into the middle of the roadway where the 45-year-old man was laying.

The deputy arrested the man, though it is unclear why the man was lying in the road in the first place.

Battery. A 24-year-old woman has been charged with battery after snatching her female roommate’s phone out of her hand, according to the 24-year-old’s arrest report.

A Sheriff’s Office deputy responded to the home because of an argument between the two women. The roommate told the deputy that because the two were arguing, the roommate decided to record it on her phone, the arrest report said.

The roommate said when she started recording, the 24-year-old became aggressive and grabbed the phone, squeezing the roommate’s hand until the roommate let go of the phone.

The 24-year-old admitted to forcefully taking the phone because she did not want her roommate recording her, the report said. Based on the video evidence of the scuffle, the deputy arrested the 24-year-old and charged her with simple battery.
