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.
