The Pasco County Sheriff's Office said Steven Robert Moniz, 45, was arrested around 12:30 a.m. Saturday in Port Richey after his roommate, Kimberly Covas Shisgal, flagged down a passing deputy and said she had been struck in the back of the head with an unidentified object while taking out the garbage, the Tampa Bay Times reported Tuesday.
Moniz told deputies he threw a Bible at Shisgal because she was shouting at him and had a knife in her hand. Deputies said they found a Bible with a bent cover on the kitchen table but found no evidence of a knife.
Moniz was charged with simple battery and taken to the Land O'Lakes jail in lieu of $150 bail.
