Pharmacist arrested for stalking, sending written threats


GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Christine Anne Brunetti, 41, was arrested yesterday on a sworn complaint from last July alleging that she called a former boyfriend 194 times in a single day and sent messages threatening to kill him.

According to the sworn complaint, Brunetti was in a “casual” relationship with the victim in June 2022, and in the following weeks, she called and emailed him numerous times. Starting at 3:36 a.m. on July 18, she allegedly called the victim 194 times in a single day from over a dozen different phone numbers; 20 of the calls came from her cell phone, and the victim believes that the other numbers are also associated with Brunetti.

Brunetti also allegedly left multiple voicemails with messages like “Die, faggot” and “Every time you don’t answer, I call your mom.”

Brunetti allegedly sent the victim multiple emails over the same time period, with threats like “Your silver hair would look perfect with bright red chunk [sic] of your sick brain splattered in it,” “I feel like if you just let me kill you with my bare hands, my rage and hate for you would finally subside and let me be at peace so I can breathe,” and “I keep having this dream where I smash your skull into the concrete face first until your white hair turns red, and then I can finally breathe again.”

After the sworn complaint was filed, Brunetti, who is a pharmacist, hired an attorney and reached an agreement with the victim’s attorney on July 25 to have no contact with him, and she has reportedly abided by that agreement. Her attorney has also been communicating with the State Attorney’s Office “in an attempt to resolve the case pre-filing.”

Formal charges of aggravated stalking with a credible threat and sending written threats to kill or do bodily injury were filed on February 2, and a warrant for Brunetti’s arrest was issued with a recommended bond of $75,000. Her attorney filed a motion for release on her own recognizance based on her compliance with the no-contact agreement and her responsibility to care for her terminally-ill mother, and she was released on her own recognizance after turning herself in yesterday.
