Woman arrested for hitting others with shovel


GAINESVILLE, Fla – Tyeisha Shenay Gould, 37, was arrested yesterday evening after allegedly hitting two women with a shovel during a fight at an apartment complex.

An Alachua County Sheriff’s Deputy responded to a report of a fight at an apartment complex (the location was redacted from the arrest report) between a number of women. A victim told the deputy that a fight broke out between her, a woman related to her, and two neighboring women after damage to the second woman’s car. The victim said Gould arrived with a shovel and that Gould hit her with the shovel multiple times while she was trying to break up the fight. The second victim also said she was hit with the shovel while she was on the ground fighting. Both victims described the shovel as a black spade tip with a long handle. Both victims reportedly had multiple cuts on their arms and faces. The victims also reported that Gould had hit the second woman’s vehicle windshield with her hand, breaking the windshield; the deputy confirmed that there was a large crack on the windshield of the woman’s vehicle.

The deputy made contact with Gould, who reportedly admitted being involved in the fight but denied having a shovel during the fight. Deputies reportedly found a shovel in the entryway of Gould’s apartment that matched the description given by the victims.

Gould has been charged with two counts of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and one count of criminal mischief. She has no criminal history, and Judge Walter Green set bail at $12,000.

  • I want Judge Green to be my judge if I get arrested. I’d be out before I warm up the orange suit

  • Why would anyone who lives in an apartment need a shovel?

    On 2nd reading it appears the alleged, arrived at the complex with the shovel. Maybe the shovel had been used to scoop cat litter? If so, highly appropriate to use in a cat fight. 😻

    There’s an apparent common attribute that’s not difficult to identify in this alleged crime.

    • No if it happened sooo what crime? She has multiple witnesses baby u can’t always assume what the cops say are tru

  • This reminds me of a family story. About a hundred years ago my great grandfather chased the banker forclosing his farm off the property with a pitchfork. I’ve been told that great granddaddy even smashed and broke the windows of the bankers car.
