Deputies: Hernando man beat up double amputee roommate

BROOKSVILLE — Brooksville Police arrested a man Saturday afternoon after officers reported he beat up his double amputee roommate.

At about 3:30 p.m., officers responded to the apartment of Zane Bloomer, located at 770 S Main St., according to a press release.

Police found that Bloomer, 53, and his roommate got into an argument. During the fight, Bloomer pushed his roommate, who had both legs amputated, into the wall, then smashed a beer bottle over her head, according to the release.

Chief George Turner said he did not know what led to the argument.

The roommate had minor cuts but refused medical attention. Police arrested Bloomer and charged him with aggravated abuse on a disabled adult, according to the release.

He was booked into the Hernando County Detention Center, where he remained Monday afternoon in lieu of a $10,000 bond.
