Lisa Anne Slone, 56, of Ocoee, was arrested on Tuesday and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill, according to Lake County online court records.
Dash Cam Video of a Florida Highway Patrol trooper showed Slone in the parking lot of a Publix in Clermont around 2:12 p.m. EDT.
Slone can be seen aiming his whip at the patrol car before driving away, WFLA-TV reported. She quickly returned to the parking lot and pointed her pitchfork at the soldier, according to the TV station.
According to an arrest report by David Moss, the FHP soldier disarmed Slone, who refused to be handcuffed. After taking Slone to the ground, Moss placed Slone in an FHP cruiser.
The soldier said he spoke with the manager of Publix, who said Slone was trying to sell teddy bears behind the store. She then ran around the parking lot and stabbed a van in the parking lot with the pitchfork.
The owner of the vehicle said he did not want the police involved and said he would repair the damage to the van himself, WFLA reported.
According to the dashcam video, Slone tells the soldier “God is great” and “God is in control”.
Slone managed to unbuckle his seat belt and kicked the cruiser’s starboard door window, according to the arrest report. Moss wrote that Slone appeared to be “very intoxicated by some sort of stimulant drug” but did not appear to be under the influence of alcohol.
Slone was taken to the Lake County Jail and arraigned Wednesday morning, according to online records. She remains in jail and bail has been set at $2,000, records show.
Slone is due in court on August 15, according to court records.
