Two men were standing in the parking lot of a DeLeon Springs gas station late in the afternoon on a September day. The 34-year-old ex-girlfriend of one of the men showed up, and a quarrel ensued.

Ex-Girlfriend picked up some rocks and threw them at her ex-boyfriend, striking his legs with the projectiles. Then she threw a cup of ice at him and the other man.

By the time a Volusia County sheriff ’s deputy arrived, Ex-Girlfriend had walked away. The deputy got the two men’s statements of what had happened.

A while later, the deputy found Ex-Girlfriend “sitting on the side of [the gas station].” She said she threw things at the guys but that none of the projectiles hit anyone.

Then Ex-Girlfriend “began saying she wishes to speak with a federal agent because she feels like she is being framed.” (Somehow I have my doubts that the feds are going to be interested in the rock-and-ice-pelting incident at the gas station.)

Checking Ex-Girlfriend’s criminal history, the deputy discovered that she’d twice been convicted of battery, in 2010 and 2013. So she was arrested on a charge of battery, second or subsequent offense.
