Man accused of domestic battery gets added charge after allegedly hitting K9 on the head


Raynell Donald Reynolds, 40, was arrested late Sunday night and charged with false imprisonment, domestic battery on a person over 65 years of age, resisting arrest with violence, and striking a police animal.

Alachua County Sheriff’s deputies responded to an apartment in Holly Heights on Sunday night after a call regarding a domestic battery. The deputies found that Reynolds had a warrant out of Alachua County for fraudulent use of a credit card and moved to detain him as he walked out of the apartment. Reynolds allegedly broke away from the deputy’s grasp several times, at which point K9 Kane was deployed. Reynolds allegedly struck K9 Kane in the head multiple times before being detained.

Reynolds is being held on $25,000 bond on the new charges plus $2,500 on the older charges.

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. 

  • Another sad SWAG district tale. Was he mooching off a kidnapped retiree’s SSI to help pay child support? More of the same revolving door of justice pyramid scheme in the slum. Sad.
