There are better ways to get a date. Dan Skuta, a linebacker for the Jacksonville Jaguars, was arrested on June 19 for assaulting a woman who refused to give him her phone number. Skuta, 30, allegedly shoved the woman, sending her into a glass window. Skuta pled not guilty, claiming that the woman hit him. He’s due back in court in July.
Scott Prince, 35, was also recently arrested on assault charges. Scott was arrested on July 3 and booked into Polk County Jail with a $600 bond. He probably wasn’t looking for a phone number, and he probably didn’t get one, either.

Let’s get ready to rumble
On July 2 at about 2:10 p.m., two officers were dispatched to Clark Street in response to a report of an assault. The suspect and the victim were once romantically involved and have not been together for the past two years, but they still reside in the same house as roommates. The victim stated she and the suspect were arguing when the suspect hit her in the face with a water bottle, and then they began wrestling. She said the fight was broken up when her son drew his handgun on the two. The second officer spoke with the suspect, who stated that he was laying on the couch when the victim arrived and they then argued about family issues. The suspect said he put a water bottle in the victim’s face and then she came at him. The suspect agreed that the fight stopped when the gun was pulled. No charges were filed because officers were unable to determine who the primary physical attacker was.
An officer met with the victim, who stated that his home on Ovid Street was burglarized on the morning of June 30. The victim said he left for work around 6 a.m., and when he returned for lunch around noon, some of his tools missing from the garage. On July 2, around 3 p.m., the victim received a call from an officer with Polk County Conservation. The officer had arrested a man at Yellow Banks Park who was in possession of a checkbook belonging to the victim. The victim stated that he keeps his checkbook in his living room and that there does not appear to be anything else missing from his home. The victim stated that he always leaves his doors to his home and garage unlocked.
On July 1, officers were dispatched to Southeast Sixth Street on a report of a domestic dispute involving “yelling and screaming” and a stepson reportedly hitting his father regarding a money dispute. Upon arrival, officers met with the male victim sitting on the back steps of the house. He stated that he allowed his stepson to have his debit card, but when he asked for it back, his stepson refused to return it. The victim did not have any visible injuries and stated that he had not been hurt. Another officer spoke with the suspect, who was visibly sweaty and appeared to be under the influence of drugs. He also appeared as though he had been in an altercation because he was out of breath. The suspect was unable to concentrate while speaking to the officer. On multiple occasions, the officer had to ask the suspect a question three times. The suspect balled up his fists while the officer was asking questions and began hitting himself. The suspect could not focus enough to tell officers anything about a domestic argument but mentioned a lot of other things that had happened that day. CV
