Naples, FL (June 14, 2019) – Deputies with Collier County arrested a man on Wednesday, identified as 23-year-old Alexander Holifield, on charges of domestic battery.

According to police, a victim spoke with them and told them that Holifield showed up unannounced at her friend’s home on 70th Street in Naples. He got into the victim’s vehicle and started hitting and choking her until she briefly lost consciousness.

The woman tried to drive off with Holifield in her vehicle because he would not get out. Someone saw the two fighting and heard the victim say that Holifield tried to kill her, which is when the witness called 911.

When deputies spotted the vehicle, the victim pulled over and Holifield got out of the car, where he ran into the woods. Deputies claimed that he tried to escape through a window.

Holifield has since been charged with domestic battery and was taken to jail.
