Police responded to an undisclosed Leesburg residence regarding a disturbance at 10:25 p.m. on Dec. 2, according to an arrest report from the Leesburg Police Department. The female victim advised that 53-year-old Eric Williams was causing a disturbance, and she wanted him to leave. 

Upon arrival, the officer observed the front door of the residence to be wide open. He made his way to the front entrance and announced himself as LPD. A male voice sounded and gave permission to enter, the report said. 

Once inside, the officer saw Williams gathering some belongings, and they both stepped out to the driveway. The officer asked where the victim was, and Williams stated she was upstairs. He also asked for some identification to which Williams replied he did not have his wallet on him, the report said. 

During this time, the victim came outside and was asked to grab Williams’ wallet. She did so, allowing the officer to identify Williams, the report said. 

The officer then asked Williams what happened before he arrived. He explained that they had both been drinking alcohol, and he was in a verbal dispute with the victim in the bedroom. The argument was over him not performing a sexual act with her. At that point, things escalated, and Williams pushed her back because she was allegedly acting out of control, the report said. 

According to the victim, she and Williams were in a verbal argument, and he pushed her right arm. This caused her to become afraid, and she called LPD to have him removed from the residence. She did not have any visible injuries and refused medical services, the report said. 

Williams was ultimately arrested for simple battery (domestic). The Massachusetts native was transported to the Lake County Jail and released after posting $1,000 bond.
