High Springs man arrested after allegedly breaking window at Gainesville Days Inn

BY JENNIFER CABRERA

Germikque Robert Doby, 41, was arrested late Friday night and charged with burglary of an occupied dwelling and simple assault after he allegedly broke a motel room window while threatening an occupant of the room.

According to the arrest report, Doby allegedly sent a text to the victim that said, “If I have to find you hunt you down I’m going to f*** you up if you just please call me and let’s talk I love.” Doby later found the victim at the Days Inn on SW 13th Street and allegedly pursued her as she ran into a room where she had been staying with another person, the witness in this case.

The witness reported that Doby began to yell aggressively through the door and hit the door, then struck and broke the room’s window with his hand. The witness said that Doby reached through the window and tried to unlock the door from the inside. The witness reportedly confronted Doby with a walking stick, and Doby did not enter the room. During this time, the victim was hiding in the bathroom.

Post Miranda, Doby reportedly admitted to sending the text and said he was “angry emotionally” at the time and sometimes says things to the victim “to get a response.”

Doby is a convicted felon who has served eight state prison sentences since 2001. He was most recently released in June of 2021 on a case in which he was convicted of two counts of simple battery. He is being held on $50,000 bail.

Articles about arrests are based on reports from law enforcement agencies. The charges listed are taken from the arrest report and/or court records and are only accusations. All suspects are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.Β 

  • Goodness…
    How many chances does our local “criminal justice system” want to give these perpetrators???

    How much more of this Soros inspired chaos do we want to put in our community?
    We need better judges, and a better States Attorney!! This is ridiculous!

    • Your trying to blame Soros for this is disturbing. Seek professional mental health services or at least find a good mechanic. You have a screw loose. SMH. Sad.

  • I know him personally and always he puts his hands on a woman but also he can be very nice to them as well however it is not judges fault or state attorney’s fault who decides to throw the book on a criminal after all its the Florida points system so the score sheet decides how much time they are going to do if you want harsher sentence take that or write to Florida legislators

      Every jail inmate should be given a multiple choice question, and pick one answer:

      β€œYou, a Gainesville resident must learn to:

      a. Flip houses or burgers
      or
      b. Show to work on time
      or
      c. Leave town ASAP”

  • Yet another situation that calls out for a public ‘multiple recidivist list’.
