RUSKIN — A Tampa Fire Rescue paramedic was arrested Saturday and charged with domestic battery.
Jaisen J. Randolph, 38, got into an argument with a woman about 11:30 p.m. Friday, placing his hand on her face and pushing her down onto a bed in a master bedroom, according to a Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office arrest report. The woman got up and Randolph put his hands on her chest and pushed her against the wall, the report states. She was not injured.
Randolph was arrested about 1 a.m. Saturday, booked into the Hillsborough County Jail and released Sunday on $500 bail.
The woman's name, her relationship to Randolph and the home's address were redacted from the report due to public records exemptions meant to protect the identity of domestic violence victims and home addresses of first responders. Jail records show Randolph was arrested at 526 Laguna Mill Drive in Ruskin.
Randolph has been suspended without pay pending the resolution of the criminal case, said Kimberly Crum, human resources director for the city of Tampa. He was hired in 2007.
