Hudson man accused of pistol-whipping acquaintance

HUDSON — A man was beaten unconscious with a gun, his facial bones shattered, during a dispute with an acquaintance down the street, the Pasco County Sheriff's Office said.

The attack happened about 10 p.m. March 16 on Sanderling Lane, in a Hudson neighborhood west of U.S. 19. The Pasco County Sheriff's Office said the victim, 24-year-old Shawn Kabaz, told a woman that her boyfriend was buying and using a lot of drugs.

When the woman confronted her boyfriend, 38-year-old David Christopher Maye, he became upset and called Kabaz, the report said. The two agreed to meet in the street between their homes, which are both on Sanderling Lane.

Authorities say Maye pistol-whipped Kabaz in the face multiple times, fracturing bones around his left eye and above his mouth. Kabaz returned home bloody and collapsed in his garage.

His uncle, Timothy Reynolds, ran out to confront Maye, who pointed the gun at him and threatened him, the report said.

Kabaz was airlifted to St. Joseph's Hospital in Tampa for treatment.

Deputies found Maye on Tuesday and arrested him on a charge of aggravated battery. He remained at the Land O'Lakes Jail Wednesday in lieu of $10,000 bail.
