Chasco Middle teacher arrested in domestic violence case

NEW PORT RICHEY — A Chasco Middle School eighth-grade math teacher was arrested Tuesday after, deputies say, she violated a domestic violence injunction her ex-boyfriend filed against her just six days before.

On Jan. 28, according to the injunction, Pamela Christin Guthrie showed up uninvited to her ex-boyfriend's home where he was inside with his two children, and began beating on the doors and windows when he wouldn't let her inside. When he went outside to ask her to leave she chased him, first on foot, then in her car and tried to hit him twice. He called the Sheriff's Office.

Before that, in September, the injunction states, Guthrie, 32, took a flathead screwdriver to the paint job on her ex's car and punctured the seats.

She violated the injunction on Monday night when she began tailing him while he drove, according to a Pasco sheriff's report. She passed by his home, coming within 500 feet of the house — another violation of the injunction.

Guthrie, of 7806 Glencoe Drive, was arrested on a charge of violating the injunction. The Pasco School District employee relations office is investigating to see how it will react after she was booked at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday. She remained in the Land O'Lakes jail late Tuesday afternoon in lieu of $1,000 bail.

    SOUTHPORT, England — Someday, perhaps soon, there will be a plaque at Royal Birkdale for Jordan Spieth, much like the one off the 16th hole that celebrates Arnold Palmer and the 6-iron he slashed out of the rough in 1961 to usher in a new era of golf.

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — There was no "here we go again" moment in the dugout as Rougned Odor's two-run homer in the eighth inning arced across Tropicana Field and toward the rightfield seats, even though when it landed, the score was tied and another late-inning Rays lead was blown.
