Woman maimed with beer bottle outside Dade City bar

DADE CITY – The crowd let out at Cooper's Bar in Carver Heights in the early hours of Saturday morning and into the parking lot. Words flew between two women. Then came the blood.

Shalonda Brockington, 33, wielded a brown beer bottle and hit Charnell Parker so hard it shattered, a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report states. Then, still clutching what remained of the bottle, Brocking sliced Parker's face and arm, causing what will likely be permanent disfigurement, deputies said.

Parker, 31, was taken to Pasco Regional Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries. The report does not say what prompted the attack.

Deputies interviewed witnesses who all pointed to Brockington as the culprit. Just after 5 that morning, deputies showed up at her Zephyrhills home to arrest her on a charge of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. She remained Monday in the Land O'Lakes jail in lieu of $10,000 bail.

  1. Looking Back: Have you ever heard of Goose Pond?


    I've lived in St. Petersburg most of my life. After a brief spell in North Carolina, my family moved back to St. Petersburg for good in 1978. And in all that time I've never heard the area around Central Plaza referred to as "Goose Pond."

    1952: Factors which made the Central Plaza development logical can be discerned in this photo, by those who know the realty situation here. Low grade and a 55-acre school site in storage kept the 90-acre Goose Pond (upper center) almost bare until now.
