A feud over mail and a check escalated for an Inglis woman now sitting in jail and facing charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill, criminal mischief and burglary.

The arrest of Angela Kaye Callihan, 41, began when a Citrus County Sheriff’s Office deputy was called Jan. 29 to a Crystal River home in the 8400 block of North Ira Martin Avenue, according to the Callihan arrest report.

When the deputy arrived he met with one of the two residents of the home who said he and his wife had just returned from grocery shopping when Callihan entered their driveway demanding a check, according to the arrest report.

The male victim also told the arresting deputy that Callihan got into her car, hit the accelerator, and sped toward him and quickly stopped, making him fear that she would hit him, according to the report.

The victim told the arresting deputy that Callihan then sped off through his yard, the report stated.

The wife of the victim also reported that when she went into her home there were items broken and in disarray. The deputy reported seeing a broken dining room chair, broken window, broken trash can, and several items tossed about.

The husband also gave the deputy a note he found in his mailbox from Callihan with her name, address and telephone number, asking for her check.

On Feb. 10, the deputy was informed that Callihan had been arrested on unrelated charges and was now in the Citrus County jail. She had been arrested and charged with driving with a suspended license and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Callihan told the deputy she went to the victims’ home and knocked on the door only to be attacked by the husband, according to the report. She admitted to the deputy about driving up to the victim and stopping in time by hitting the brakes. But she denied ever entering the home, according to the arrest report. She said she wanted her mail.

But when the deputy asked about whether Callihan entered the home, the deputy reported she became agitated and said she no longer wanted to talk, according to the report.

The deputy charged her and her bond was set at $12,500.
