Woman charged with hitting her daughter with machete


GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Ann Marie Theresa Williams, 51, was arrested last night after her daughter reported that she had been hit with a machete.

An Alachua County Sheriff’s Deputy responded to a call at about 10:20 p.m. last night about a woman with a machete at Bellamay Grand Apartments. The deputy made contact with the victim, who had injuries to her eye, hand, and arm. The victim said she and her mother had gotten into an argument, and her mother took a machete from the closet. The two women then fought over the machete, and Williams allegedly raised the machete over her head but did not make any specific threats. The victim was eventually able to take the machete from Williams.

Williams has been charged with domestic aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. She has no local criminal history but had an out-of-county conviction in 2019. Judge Susan Miller-Jones set bail at $30,000.

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. 

  • Judge Miller Jones, always there to protect the victim. (sarcasm). $30,000 bond. Laughable.

  • She’s obviously not the sharpest object in the house. People wonder why some of these kids would rather be out on the street.

    She must have OD’d on Bryan Adams. It’s gotta be his fault, he fits the mold.

  • It’s remarkable she was arrested and jailed. Sometimes cops wait until things get really bad.

  • You can tell the woman is hurting inside and needs emotional and mental help. The comments left by the peanut gallery on the articles that clearly show mental illness is involved on the part of the offender is so often more offensive than the perpetrated crime itself.
    We all need some type of therapy, y’all included. You’re no better than anyone else, no matter what you say you’d never think or do.

    • Fine, she’s “hurting inside” as if you could know that, that does not entitle her to hit her daughter with a machete.
      Mental illness is NOT more offensive than the crime itself, in fact it’s not “offensive” at all, it just is.

    • Crow…🤣😂🤣 Love when people want to use “mental illness” for all the bad things that happen in the community.
