Police: Toilet lid became weapon in Pasco motel fight

NEW PORT RICHEY – A family argument turned violent Saturday when a woman took a ceramic toilet lid and swung it at her cousin's head, police said.

After she missed, Angelic Innamorato, 28, pointed a black revolver at her cousin, said she was going to kill him and stole his wallet, a New Port Richey police report states. She fled around 7:30 a.m. from his room at the River Side Inn.

Innamorato told officers who responded to her Ridge Crest Drive home that she had indeed picked up the toilet lid, but only to look for her keys. After her arrest, authorities say, Innamorato kicked at the inside of the police cruiser, smashing the door.

She was charged with two counts of aggravated assault, petty theft and criminal mischief and released Saturday on $10,300 bail from the Land O'Lakes jail.
