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.
