HOLIDAY -- A woman threw a porcelain candle holder at her husband, then repeatedly kicked and pushed an officer who was trying to arrest her on suspicion of domestic battery Tuesday, sheriff's deputies said.
Tabitha Allison Krebs, 21, of 3546 Beacon Square Drive was arrested Tuesday on charges of simple domestic battery, battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest with violence, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana.
Deputies said Krebs threw the candle holder at her husband, Benjamin Wesley Krebs, 22, during an argument about 1 a.m., then grabbed his neck. When an officer arrived at the house and tried to arrest Krebs, she kicked him in the groin and pushed him backward and kicked him again when he tried to handcuff her, a sheriff's office report said. Krebs was taken to the Land O' Lakes jail, where a corrections officer had to pepper-spray her after she became violent, the report said.
The deputy also reported finding three water pipes, rolling papers, a bottle with marijuana seeds and a bag of marijuana in the house.
Krebs was being held Wednesday at the Land O' Lakes jail on a $5,750 bail.
Benjamin Krebs was also cited on the drug charges but was not taken to jail so he could care for the couple's 4-month-old baby.
Man facing charge of assaulting deputies
NEW PORT RICHEY -- A 39-year-old man was arrested Tuesday on charges of battery on a law enforcement officer and domestic battery.
Zachary Alan Hiscuit, of 7532 U.S. 19, punched a woman in the face, neck and legs at 4:30 a.m., according to deputies. When two deputies tried to arrest Hiscuit, he kicked one of them twice. He was being held Wednesday at the Land O' Lakes jail.
Zephyrhills woman reports 3-week-old rape
ZEPHYRHILLS -- A 38-year-old woman told deputies Tuesday that she was kidnapped at gunpoint three weeks ago, taken to an open field in Zephyrhills and raped, the Pasco County Sheriff's Office reported.
According to reports, the woman said she had been drinking at the Crystal Bar in Zephyrhills June 7 and went for a drive later that evening.
She was driving a rented Ford Escort north on Dean Dairy Road, near the intersection of Eiland Boulevard, when, she said, a red Chevrolet Cavalier forced her off the road. Two men, she said, pulled her out of her car and forced her at gunpoint to get in the back of the Cavalier.
A third man got into her car and followed the Cavalier to a field near Chancey Road, the woman told deputies.
Along the way, she said, one of the men held a gun to her and ordered her to drink a lukewarm beer that she thinks was laced with something because it made her feel as though she was paralyzed. When they got to the field, the men stripped her and raped her, she said.
The woman said she passed out during the assault, and when she woke up, she was lying naked next to her car.
The Sheriff's Office did not release the woman's name. The woman lives in Zephyrhills, reports said.
The woman was unable to provide descriptions of the three suspects, and detectives found no clues to guide them in their investigation, reports said. Sheriff's spokesman Kevin Doll said he didn't know why the woman waited three weeks to report the incident.
