A Villager has been ordered to perform community service after an attack on his live-in lady friend.

Daniel Scott Seropian, 51, was arrested April 26 at the home of his 87-year-old mother at 853 Chappells Drive in the Stillwater Villas.

At the time of his arrest, Seropian had arrived home shortly before midnight and was greeted by his girlfriend who was “cutting him down as usual,” according to the arrest report. Seropian said she “wouldn’t stop yelling at him and he had enough,” the deputy wrote in the arrest report. Seropian told the woman four times to leave.

“That’s not how it works, you leave,” she said.

The woman said Seropian, who stands 6 feet tall and weighs 220 pounds, screamed threats at her face, picked her up by the shoulders and threw her up against the kitchen sink.

Earlier this month in Sumter County Court, he entered a plea of no contest to a charge of battery. He has been placed on probation for a year and ordered to perform 20 hours of community service.

Seropian’s mother in 2009 purchased the villa where the altercation occurred. Seropian went to court to get his girlfriend out.

According to a joint stipulation on file in Sumter County Court, she has agreed to leave the home. Seropian has agreed to pay her $250 once she is gone to assist her in moving to a new residence.
