Zephyrhills woman accused of hitting elderly boyfriend

ZEPHYRHILLS

Police: Woman, 20, hit 78-year-old boyfriend

Police arrested a 20-year-old woman Thursday after, they say, she beat her 78-year-old boyfriend with a frying pan.

An argument started about 10 p.m., a Zephyrhills Police Department report states. Later, Courtney Alicia Shantel Mitchell, told her boyfriend "that if he did not go buy her marijuana she was going to wreck the house," the report states.

She threw things off counters and shredded important papers, the report states. When he tried to stop her, according to the report, Mitchell hit her boyfriend with what he believes was a frying pan, causing a large lump.

Mitchell, who lives with her boyfriend at 6543 Foxmoor Drive, told deputies the victim shoved her on the ground during the argument.

Mitchell was arrested on a battery on the elderly charge and taken to the Land O'Lakes jail.
