DELAND, Fla. (FOX 35 WOFL) - A DeLand man accused of threatening and attacking his girlfriend is due in court.
In May, a 28-year-old woman tried to save her life by slipping a note to staff members at a veterinarian's office. Volusia County deputies say that Jeremy Floyd beat her, threatened her with a gun, and kept her locked in her home for two days.
Eventually, the victim convinced Floyd to take their dog to the vet. They say Floyd agreed and packed a loaded pistol when they went to the DeLand Animal Hospital. While there, this surveillance video shows the victim slipping a note to a staff member. The note said "call the cops. My boyfriend is threatening me. He has a gun. Please don't let him know."
A short while later, police came in and arrested Floyd. After he was arrested and placed in jail, deputies say that Floyd did not obey his no contact orders. They say the jail phone system confirms he used his inmate number to call the victim 47 times over three days. He left a voicemail apologizing, but he is now facing stalking charges for this violation.
Floyd is facing a laundry 'ist of charges from Domestic Violence, Aggravated Assault with a Firearm, False Imprisonment, and Battery.
