Palm Bay, FL (January 28, 2019) – In Brevard County, police say that a man was arrested for shoving a gun in a woman’s mouth after she complained that he was talking too much during a TV program.
The man has been identified as 55-year-old Calvin Lindsey. He was arrested on assault and battery charges at his home in Palm Bay.
The woman complained that Lindsey was talking during the TV show which is when Lindsey got up and went into the master bedroom, closing the bedroom door behind him. A short time later, the woman went into the master bedroom so that she could get a blanket, which is when she heard him taking down a shotgun from the gun rack.
The woman said that she told Lindsey that she thought he was trying to 'intimidate her' with the gun which is when he knocked her to the floor, fired the gunshot into the ceiling of the home and proceeded to force the barrel of a 9mm handgun into her mouth and said 'you want to see intimidation?'. So hard that he broke one of her teeth off.
Somehow, she was able to summon the police for help. When authorities arrived, the woman was covered in bruises all over her neck and back. Lindsey has since been arrested on assault with a deadly weapon and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon charge. Currently, he is being held at the local jail.
