Holiday man accused of domestic battery also faces drug charges


Battery arrest brings about drug evidence

Just after midnight Thursday, Daniel Fisher Jackson began choking his girlfriend on his porch during an argument, according to a report from the Pasco County Sheriff's Office.

Witnesses told deputies they heard the woman gasping for air. Jackson, 33, also "smacked" the woman several times, the report said.

Deputies arrested Jackson, of 1208 Lord St., on a charge of domestic battery by strangulation — then found small baggies of marijuana, a glass bong, valium and propoxyphene in the home.

Jackson was also charged with possession of marijuana, possession of cocaine, possession of a controlled substance and possession of paraphernalia. He remained at the Land O'Lakes jail on Friday in lieu of $10,300 bail.


Wanted man charged with battery on officer

A 28-year-old man who was wanted on warrants is accused of hitting the Dade City Police officer who tried to arrest him.

The officer spotted Eddy Lee at about 4:17 p.m. Oct. 10 running into a house at 37323 Oak St., a few doors down from Lee's home at 37330 Oak St., the police report said.

The officer followed, the report said, but three people stood in the doorway and tried to pull the door shut. Lee then charged down a hallway toward the officer with a clenched fist, hit the officer in the chest, slammed the door on the officer's left arm and pinned him in the doorway, the report said.

The officer broke free and tried to grab Lee, who fled the house and hit an officer in the face, causing a minor injury.

Lee was arrested Thursday on charges of battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest without violence and felony fleeing to elude a law enforcement officer. He was released Friday after posting $15,000 bail.


Woman accused of whipping boyfriend

A 28-year-old woman is accused of hitting her boyfriend with a horse whip to prevent him from entering the home they shared.

According to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office, Krista Peeler reached for the whip about 9 p.m. Thursday because she didn't want her boyfriend of four years to enter the home at 4210 Seaberg Road.

The two pushed each other during the fight, the sheriff's report said, but Peeler was charged with domestic battery because she used the whip and was considered the "primary aggressor" of the fight.

She remained Friday in the Land O'Lakes jail without bond.
