33-year-old man charged after fight with girlfriend

PORT RICHEY -- A 33-year-old man was arrested Friday after a fight with his girlfriend that started when he urinated on a dresser in their home, Pasco County sheriff's deputies said.

Frederick Franklin Eskridge, 33, of 11204 Grant Drive was charged with aggravated domestic assault and domestic battery, deputies said.

His girlfriend told deputies that she woke up early Friday morning to the sound of Eskridge urinating on the dresser, according to a deputy's report. When she told him to use the bathroom, he grabbed her by both arms and threw her to the floor.

After she got away, she told deputies, he threw a ceiling fan, missing her by just a few inches, the report says.

She was not injured during the incident, deputies said.

Eskridge was being held Saturday at county jail in Land O'Lakes in lieu of $10,000 bail.
