A Crystal River man was arrested on a charge of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, accused of striking a woman in her head with a baseball bat and knocking her unconscious.

Jacob Timothy Lolley, 40, was booked into the county jail Sunday, June 28, 2020, on the felony charge.

When he was jailed, Lolley’s bond was set at none as the alleged offense was domestic in nature.

A judge at Lolley’s first court appearance on June 29 reset the bond to $10,000, according to the Citrus County Detention Facility on July 1.

Lolley must wear a GPS device if he posts bail, the judge ordered.

According to Lolley’s arrest report, obtained July 1, Citrus County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Nicholas Erdman was dispatched to a redacted address, where a 911 hangup was reported.

When he arrived, Erdman found a woman stumbling around outside a trailer. She told the deputy “Jacob hit me,” and pointed to the left side of her head to show a bleeding, golfball-sized lump, the arrest report shows.

She told Erdman she and Lolley were arguing when Lolley grabbed an aluminum bat and struck her, causing her to lose consciousness. 

A neighbor told Erdman Lolley and the woman had been drinking and argued for most of the day, and spotted Lolley run into a neighboring trailer just before the deputy arrived. 

Erdman approached the trailer in question and spotted Lolley inside, drinking a beer, according to the arrest report. Lolley’s statements to Erdman were redacted from his arrest report.

Lolley’s next court hearing is his arraignment, set for July 14.
