A man was arrested after an altercation in the ladies’ restroom at a Circle K in The Villages.

Lady Lake police were called at 11:50 a.m. Tuesday to the Circle K at 3 LaGrande Blvd. on the Historic Side of The Villages.

An employee at Circle K told police he had witnessed 24-year-old Edward Anthony Fuchs, of Wildwood, shove his live-in girlfriend into the restroom, according to an arrest report from the Lady Lake Police Department. The employee heard loud arguing and the woman pleading with Fuchs to stop. When an officer arrived on the scene, he heard a threat being yelled and two loud slaps.

The woman provided a statement indicating that Fuchs shoved her several times while in the bathroom, as well as hit her several times in the face.

He was arrested on a charge of domestic battery and booked at the Lake County Jail on $10,000 bond.

Fuchs had been arrested last year in a burglary at a dead woman’s house.
