A Lady Lake man is free on $25,000 bond after an alleged attack on his live-in lady friend.
Lady Lake police were called Wednesday to a home in the 400 block of Winners Circle where a neighbor reported that 36-year-old Richard Shearl had locked a woman out of the house. Police entered the home and found that the kitchen and living room were in “disarray.”
The woman, who has a child in common with Shearl, said that during an argument, Shearl grabbed her by the neck and strangled her, according to an arrest report. She said he also slammed a door against her. Police noticed a palm print on her back.
Shearl was arrested on a third-degree felony charge of domestic battery by strangulation.
