Battery Suspect Escapes in Handcuffs, Burglary Suspect Says “I did a lot of coke”

SPRING HILL – Sheriff’s Deputies had their hands full today, after a battery suspect escaped custody, while still in handcuffs, and another attempted to burglarize at least three residences.

Official reports have not been released but according to sources, around noon today a deputy made contact with battery suspect, 33-year-old Nathan Emerson Strauss in the area of Trenton Ave. Sources say when the deputy placed handcuffs on Strauss he fled on foot into the Timber Pines Subdivision. K-9 was dispatched to the area and numerous deputies began searching the gated community and surrounding neighborhoods. A K-9 unit was able to locate Strauss hiding in a drainage tunnel and was subsequently bitten by K-9 before being taken into custody.

Strauss was transported to Oak Hill Hospital for treatment and later booked into the Hernando County Jail.

Strauss is charged with Battery, Battery on a LEO, and Escape. He is currently held without bond.

A second incident occurred around 3:00 p.m. this afternoon in the areas of Marysville Street and Everett Ave.

According to unconfirmed reports, at least two victims on Marysville Street reported that a man had tried to enter their homes without permission. A third victim on Everett Ave also filed an attempted burglary report.

One witness followed the suspect, who was later identified as 22-year-old Dallas Scarpati, until deputies caught up with him on a service road near Mariner Blvd and Hearth Road.

During an interview with deputies, Scarpati advised “I did a lot of coke” and requested Fire Rescue. Scarpati was transported to a local hospital but is expected to face several charges upon his release.

Scarpati has a long history of arrests, including fraud, theft, battery, and dealing in stolen property.

      • I have known the Scarpati family for over 22 years. One bad apple does not spoil the bunch. You should not label a whole family like this. I am sure you come from the “perfect” family. When you raise kids and teenagers to be so perfect let us know. Karma is a bitch.

        Thursday, 30 March 2017, 10:31 am
        • There’s more than one bad apple in that bunch. The whole bushel is spoiled. This is Scapati’s karma. He ruined a lot of lives with his lies and his sons are just like him. I know him personally.

      • lol, what reality do you live in? Its a fact him and his bud tony roughed up some punk at that shady bar and was messing with his girlfriend. Again these are facts, sorry your feeble mind cannot handle them.

        Thursday, 30 March 2017, 11:38 am
      • Your brother is and was a POS as a deputy. He’s also a known coke abuser and a drunk. He did not retire after 25 years. He resigned amidst an internal affairs investigation so that he could keep from getting fired. Your brother is a damn security guard now. Elisa used to date this POS, I know what I’m saying about him to be the truth. I dated him when he was still married because he lied to me and said he wasn’t. Here you go. Did you forget what really happened to your brother? is just as bad and he just hasn’t been caught doing his coke yet.

        I stand by what I say. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. No truthfulness in the Scarpati clan.

        Thursday, 30 March 2017, 11:49 am
        • Are you a friend of Elisa and using her name? Or are you the one that’s been hurt? Doesn’t matter either way but I sure would like to talk with you.
          Sounds like we have a similar situation.

      Thursday, 30 March 2017, 6:57 am
    • His father deserves nothing but praise and respect. He served Hernando County for many years with the utmost dignity. Thank you to all in the Hernando Sheriffs Department.

      Thursday, 30 March 2017, 8:26 am
      • He’s a liar and a cheater. He’s a POS who can’t even get a job as a cop any more.

    Wednesday, 29 March 2017, 7:05 pm
    • They didn’t catch him. After losing them while being chased he came into my backyard. The wrong backyard, first going after him on foot, then I jumped in my car and chased him down relaying all to dispatch who disconnected on me 3 different times.I got him two different times in the area. The cops finally arrived about same time as Tom did. All without lights I may add it little rush. They were searching for him already for theft and dealing in stolen property. This dirtbag would of walked had I not chased him down.

      Thursday, 30 March 2017, 1:48 am
      • Well thank you for your participation. Now you can feel good you did something for the county.
