Marion County sheriff’s deputies responded to a residence located on SE 145th Place in reference to a disturbance. Upon arrival, deputies met with the victim who advised that he and 55-year-old Cynthia Marie Tine had an argument in which he then decided to pack some clothes and leave the residence. While exiting the home carrying clothes onto the front porch, the victim felt an object, which he believed was the soft end of a mop, strike the back of his head. The victim stated that Tine struck him with the stick end of the mop, but was unsure if Tine had swung and struck him with the mop or if she simply threw the mop at him since his back was turned to her.

Deputies observed a white mop lying on the front porch near the steps, where the victim was previously leaning against the front door frame. They also observed about an inch long red mark on the victim’s spine that could have been caused by an object such as a mop stick, according to the report.

Tine originally told deputies that the argument was verbal. She then told deputies that the victim threw a chair at her, but it did not hit her, the report stated. The victim then told deputies that he fell on the front porch on his back, which is how he sustained his injury.

Tine was placed under arrest and transported to Marion County Jail.
