Mother, son hit man, but deny causing injury

A mother and her adult son are accused of beating a family member's fiance with a baseball bat Tuesday night, according to arrest reports. Pamela F. Moore, 54, and her son, Jeremy J. Moore, 30, were each charged with aggravated domestic battery. According to the reports, Pamela Moore's daughter was arguing with her fiance, Timothy Davy, at Moore's home at 15454 59th St. N near Largo about 7 p.m., when Pamela and Jeremy Moore attacked Davy with a baseball bat. Davy sustained a broken hand and a large lump on the back of his head, the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office said. Both mother and son admitted hitting Davy, but they each denied causing his injuries, the reports say. On Wednesday afternoon, both were being held without bail in the Pinellas County Jail.

PALM HARBOR

Neighbor caught looking for drugs

A 54-year-old man caught as he rummaged through a neighbor's bathroom looking for prescription drugs apologized to his victim and said his drug addiction spurred him to burglarize the house, authorities said. Gary J. Paulsen, of 1511 E Dorchester Drive, was charged with burglary of a dwelling on Tuesday afternoon. According to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office, a 77-year-old man became suspicious when he saw Paulsen's dog unattended in his yard Tuesday morning. The homeowner then noticed his garage door was open. The homeowner went into his house to find Paulsen looking through drawers in a bathroom, an arrest report shows. Paulsen apologized to the man and said he was looking for oxycodone because he has a drug addiction. Paulsen was also arrested on a warrant for failure to appear at his November 2008 arraignment on a charge of obtaining property with a worthless check. On Wednesday afternoon, Paulsen was being held in the Pinellas County Jail in lieu of $10,300 bail.
