Trenton man charged with burglary of an occupied dwelling and criminal mischief after allegedly threatening to kill Gainesville woman


Zachary Lewis Glover, 31, of Trenton, was arrested last night after allegedly pursuing his victim from Levy County to her home in Gainesville and entering her house while she hid in the bathroom.

The Alachua County Sheriff’s deputy who responded wrote that when he arrived at the residence off Williston Road, he could see that the glass in the front door was broken. He reportedly saw Glover coming out of the home through the broken door, and when he told Glover to get on the ground, he said Glover continued to walk toward him, asking the deputy to shoot him. Glover was eventually tased and taken into custody.

The victim reportedly told the deputy that the situation had been ongoing all day and began in Levy County, where Glover made threats to kill both of them. She said that when she left Levy County, Glover tried to run her over in his vehicle. Those allegations were reported to law enforcement in Levy County.

The victim said that after she returned to her home, she heard something outside that sounded like a motorcycle, but she saw that it was Glover doing donuts in his truck in her front yard. She said he caused about $1,500 damage to the grass and irrigation system. She said Glover also cut the screen to the backyard pool and threw an outdoor television to the ground, breaking it and causing another $500 in damage.

She said Glover then came around to the front of the home and started banging on the front door before breaking the glass. She retreated to her bathroom, and she said Glover came in the house and into the bedroom before retreating back outside, where he encountered the deputy.

Glover has been charged with unarmed burglary of an occupied dwelling, damage to property over $1,000, and resisting an officer without violence. He is being held on $80,000 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. 

  • I think this case requires much more than $80k bail. But we need to know if they had a history, or just met on Tinder, etc? That’s no excuse either way.

  • Sounds like he needs to be charged with more than that, like home invasion, attempted murder and more.
