A PVC pipe, metal trailer hitch and a grilling fork were gathered as evidence, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.
MANATEE COUNTY — A woman wielding a grilling fork stabbed her neighbor with it during a backyard skirmish over a yard fire Monday, the Manatee County Sheriff's Office reports.
Jessica Garay, 39, was charged with criminal mischief and use of a deadly weapon, Amos Trevino, 32, was charged with battery and aggravated assault and Raul Trevino, 53, was charged with battery for their roles in the incident.
According to the Sheriff's Office probable cause affidavit, the Trevinoes and Garay used a metal trailer hitch, a PVC pipe and a grilling fork to attack two neighbors who came to their home on Flamingo Boulevard on Monday at about 6:30 p.m.
The argument began when a neighbor arrived in a truck and told the Trevinos to extinguish a backyard fire. They showed the man that the fire was burning out, but an argument ensued and Amos Trevino swung a metal trailer hitch at the man, who retreated to his truck.
Another neighbor heard the incident and jumped over a fence into the Trevino's yard to check on his neighbor. Raul Trevino struck him several times with PVC pipe and Amos Trevino punched the man, the report said.
Garay came out of the house telling the neighbor who first arrived "I'm gonna (expletive) kill you." She stabbed the man in his arm with a grilling fork and then threw a brick into the windshield of his truck.
The neighbors got into the truck and returned home to contact law enforcement. They were evaluated by emergency responders, but refused to go to the hospital.
No bail was set for Raul Trevino. Amos Trevino received a $500 bond for battery, but no bail was set for aggravated assault.
Garay had a bond of $500 set for criminal mischief, but no bail was set for use of a deadly weapon.
