An Ocala, Florida man was arrested after he struck the mother of his children with a golf club.
According to the Ocala Police Department, Darnell Gregory Headings, 31, said he came home from work to find that the house was a mess and that, no food had been prepared for him.
Headings then began to argue with the woman, at which time he grabbed a golf club and threatened to hit her with it.
The victim then told Headings to hit her, and he did — once on each leg in the knee area. The woman said he did it with full force to the point she could hardly walk. Children in the home attempted to help, but Headings pushed them away.
The woman then took six of her seven children to Martin Luther King Park and called the police.
When an officer arrived, he reported that he could see the woman limping and that she was having difficulty walking. The officer said he could see bruising and swelling consistent with being struck with a hard object.
Headings was located at King’s Food Store at 149 Southwest Martin Luther King Avenue.
He confessed to hitting the woman. Headings told police he was frustrated to come home and find a dirty house and an empty table after working all day. He said that he expects his food to be ready and on the table.
“She should have had my dinner ready,” Headings stated to police.
Headings was arrested and charged with Aggravated Domestic Battery with a Deadly Weapon. He was also arrested last October for domestic battery.
The woman has since filed a domestic violence injunction against Headings. He cannot have contact with the children or the woman.
