“I’d Kill Him” Drunk Florida Woman Has Rough Saturday After Attacking Elderly Man And Cops

Saturday evening, deputies responded to a residence about a domestic disturbance.

The victim told deputies that he was attacked by 61-year-old Elizabeth Lugger, saying she struck him several times, choked him, and pointed a firearm at him.

During questioning, the victim told deputies that Lugger was intoxicated, began to argue with him, made statements about wanting him dead and to leave, then became violent.

During the altercation, the victim was eventually able to get away when Lugger went into her bedroom, grabbed a firearm, and aimed it at the victim as he began to exit the residence.

While speaking with deputies, Lugger made several statements about her being the only one with access to the gun safe, that she “shouldn’t have a gun” and the gun safe was open because she “threatened him,” advising “I’d kill him.”

Deputies arrested Lugger and took her to Advent Health – Palm Coast for medical clearance as she appeared to be heavily intoxicated with some blood on her hand and foot.

While awaiting medical evaluations, Lugger grew impatient and tried to pull away from deputies, ultimately kicking the deputy in an attempt to get away. The deputy did not sustain any injuries.

Lugger was transported to the Sheriff Perry Hall Inmate Detention Facility where she’s being held on no bond.

She’s facing charges of Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon, Domestic Battery by Strangulation, Aggravated Battery on a Person 65 Years of Age or Older, Use of a Firearm While Under the Influence of Alcohol, and Battery on a Law Enforcement Officer.
