Obama Supporter Run Over in Satellite Beach
SATELLITE BEACH, FLORIDA--- A disagreement over a political yard sign on Trinidad Drive has left one Satellite Beach woman injured and another facing criminal charges. The victim, unidentified until SBPD completes their investigation, did not answer her door yesterday when her neighbor (another woman, also unidentified pending investigation) reportedly knocked on her door to discuss the Obama/Biden sign in her yard. The victim allegedly observed her neighbor removing the sign and riding away on her motorized scooter. Consequently, the victim came out of her house. The neighbor rode her scooter around the block, and then returned to the home, throwing the sign at the victim's feet. A heated conversation ensued, at which point the neighbor allegedly hit the throttle and ran the woman over in her doorway, resulting in cuts, bruises and tire tread marks. The alleged perpetrator then told the woman "you're okay" and left the premises on her scooter. The victim called 911 and was able to identify the neighbor's house based on the fact that she had seen the scooter for sale on the driveway for several weeks.
Although the investigation is still pending and the Police Report is not yet released, Brevard Times has learned that the woman will likely face charges of battery and theft. She has already received a citation for leaving the scene of an accident.
