Authorities arrested both 21-year-old Monique Mariani and 23-year-old Angel Jose Mariani after they battered their grandparents at a home in Spring Hill. Allegedly, the pair had been living inside a tent in the backyard of their grandparent’s property.
The grandparents had given money to Monique and her other sister. Angel then found out and demanded that his grandfather also give him cash. His grandfather refused and so Angel began punching him repeatedly until the older man was able to lock himself in a shed on the property.
The grandmother asked the grandchildren to leave, which is when Angel and Monique began punching and kicking her. Angel was able to force his way into the shed with his grandfather and vandalized multiple items while in there.
Monique and the other sister, who had an active warrant, were arrested nearby. Angel tried to run away and hide but through the use of a K-9 and air unit, they were able to catch him.
Angel and Monique received various charges of domestic battery, refusing officers, and more.
