Husband arrested after allegedly threatening to shoot wife’s cat

Timothy Paul Taylor

A Lady Lake man was arrested after allegedly threatening to shoot his wife’s cat.

The wife of 29-year-old Timothy Paul Taylor went to the Lady Lake Police Department and reported that she and her husband had been arguing over her cell phone the night before, according to an arrest report from the Lake County Sheriff’s Office. She said her husband threw her cat across the room and threatened to shoot it.

She discovered her debit cards had been taken, presumably by her husband. He ordered her to obtain money for him and threw her to the ground, the report said. She left and sought the help of law enforcement.

A deputy went to Taylor’s home at 4611 Lake Griffin Road. When a deputy knocked on the door, Taylor was spotted with a beer in his hand. Taylor resisted the deputy’s efforts to take him into custody. A Remington 597 and 29 rounds of ammunition were found in the home.

Taylor was arrested on multiple charges including aggravated assault with a firearm and simple domestic battery. He was booked at the Lake County Jail and released after posting $8,000 bond.
