Pasco deputies: Minister beat and cut husband



HUDSON — The reason for the fight is vague in Pasco sheriff's reports. They say only that Lashunda Ann Davis' husband questioned her about what he found inside the couple's truck Monday night, then she became violent.

Davis, 41, yelled at her husband, and he turned his back, a sheriff's report states. She slugged him in the ear then yanked him to the ground by his hair.

Then Davis, whose job is listed as a minister, looped her husband's own belt around his throat and dragged him into the kitchen, the report states. He got on his feet. She wielded a butcher knife, threatened his life, then sliced his right arm.

Her husband swept Davis' legs out from under her, making her fall and drop the knife, the report states. Then he snatched it away.

Tuesday brought another scuffle between the couple as they sat in their truck near their home at Curlew Lane and Puffin Lane.

This time, reports state, the argument was about a check. The husband said he would sign the check if she would return his computer. Davis lashed out again, digging her fingernails into his left arm when he tried to get out.

When he was able to finally open the door, Davis hit the gas, throwing her husband from the truck.

Reports don't list how deputies were contacted, but Davis was arrested Wednesday.

Davis, of 6829 Curlew Lane, was charged with two counts of domestic battery and one count of aggravated battery without a weapon. She remained in the Land O'Lakes jail Thursday without bail.
