Port Richey man burned teen with cigarette, deputies say

PORT RICHEY

Man arrested after three injured at home

A man was arrested Monday night after, deputies say, he went on a rampage injuring three people, including his wife and a 15-year-old.

During an argument about 10:45 p.m., Ricky Leon Traywick, 56, hit his wife and another person in the face with a shoe, a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report states. Traywick grabbed a clothes iron and tried to hit the second victim with it but barely missed, the report states, then he struck a third victim, a 15-year-old boy, and put out a cigarette on the boy's face.

It's unclear what sparked the altercation.

The three victims and Traywick live in the same home at 11419 Fox Run, the report states. Traywick was arrested on charges of aggravated child abuse, aggravated assault and domestic battery. He remained in Land O'Lakes jail Tuesday in lieu of $10,000 bail.

    Goliath, the biblical giant, wasn't known for bothering fishermen. But the gigantic fish named after him — they can weigh up to 800-pounds — is notorious for exactly that.

    Biologists take samples from a goliath grouper that was caught in the Gulf of Mexico. The fish was released back into the gulf. Florida fishermen have petitioned the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to allow them to catch the up to 800-pound fish for a limited time.

    Over the past several weeks, Monalisa Perez of Halstad, Minnesota, and her boyfriend, Pedro Ruiz III, began their quest for YouTube fame by creating and posting videos of mostly harmless pranks. On June 26, 2017, authorities say, Perez, 19, shot at a thick book that Ruiz, 22, was holding, apparently believing that the bullet would not make it through the volume. The bullet entered Ruiz's chest and he died at the scene. [Photo from video]
