Dade Oaks apartment manager arrested after spat with Pasco deputies

DADE CITY — A Pasco Housing Authority manager was arrested Thursday after she became belligerent with deputies investigating a crime, authorities said.

Kandi Marie Vanover-Peters, 25, told deputies she wanted a trespassing warning issued to a man who was recently involved in a domestic battery at the Dade Oaks apartment complex at 37475 Acorn Loop. When deputies said they couldn't issue a warning if the man lived there, Vanover-Peters became irate, a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report states.

The deputies were interviewing the domestic battery suspect when Vanover-Peters burst from the management office, screaming expletives at them, the report states. One deputy told Vanover-Peters 15 times that she was impeding their investigation and to go back into the office.

"You can't do nothing to me!" she yelled, according to the report. "I'm the manager!"

The deputies ultimately issued a trespassing warning to the man. Then they arrested Vanover-Peters, of Dade City, on a charge of obstruction and resisting arrest without violence.

She was not taken to jail, but was given a citation to appear in court.
