Wife jailed after fight over husband urinating on the floor, Pasco deputies say

WESLEY CHAPEL — Deanne Elsholz said her husband urinated on the bathroom floor.

David Elsholz just wanted to go back to sleep.

It was almost midnight Monday at their mobile home at 5951 Woodsman Drive in the Angus Valley community.

Deputies who arrived later said the place was cluttered with Natural Light beer cans, and both husband and wife appeared to be drunk.

"What are you doing?" Deanne, 44, asked David, 50, when she heard his urine spraying the floor, according to what she told authorities.

She said her husband then slapped her about the head with a towel and, in retaliation, she threw a glass from her nightstand at his face. It hit him in the nose, a report states, and blood poured down his chest and arms.

Then, Deanne "ran into the bathroom and slipped on David's pee," the report states.

She told deputies David kicked her in the ribs while she was on the ground, and she crawled to get her phone and called 911.

David's story was that he was sleeping and woke up to use the bathroom.

After urinating, he went back to bed but Deanne started yelling at him, the report states.

"David told her he didn't want to argue and he just wanted to sleep."

Then she hit him with the glass, he told authorities.

Deanne was deemed the aggressor in the brawl and arrested. She is charged with domestic battery — something David has been charged with twice in recent years, according to the Pasco Sheriff's Office.

Deanne is being held without bail in the Land O'Lakes jail. She complained of rib pain and was taken to a local hospital to be checked out. Doctors said she was fine, the report states.
