Starke, FL (November 30, 2018) – On Wednesday, a Starke Police Department supervisor identified as 37-year-old Robert Todd Jordan resigned after he was arrested for domestic battery and aggravated assault on November 21st for an attack on his girlfriend. He apparently pulled a gun on her during the assault. The authorities say that the couple’s children were in the home at the time of the incident.
Deputies were initially called to the home where they found Jordan’s girlfriend who claimed that Jordan broke down the door when she attempted to lock herself inside the room with their baby and a little girl during the escalating argument. Jordan allegedly pushed her to the ground at least five times, grabbed her by the neck, and shoved her up against a wall. She fell to the floor, which is when he let go of her neck and grabbed a gun off of the dresser.
The two continued to argue until the victim was able to grab a knife and cut Jordan’s wrists. She was then able to escape the bedroom. When deputies found her, she had multiple bruises up and down her left arm and on her foot.
Police have since arrested Jordan and charged him with domestic battery.
