Blaming “Fathead” Doesn’t Fool Deputy, Woman Faces Drug Charges

DADE CITY (HERNANDO) – A Sheriff Deputy’s keen instincts led to the arrest of a Spring Hill woman early Thursday morning, after he stopped to check what appeared to be a disabled vehicle on Gardenia Way.

According to officials, Deputy David Greis-Ospina made contact with two women standing next to a vehicle to find out if they needed assistance. One of the women, who identified herself as Miranda Roseanne, claimed her friend “Fathead” was walking to the gas station to get fuel. Roseanne continued to use the term “Fathead” as he explained the situation to Deputy Ospina.

Roseanne complained that “Fathead” took the keys to the vehicle and that she was not the driver. During the interview, Roseanne said she notified “Fathead” that law enforcement was on scene, so he decided to catch a ride home from the gas station, leaving the women behind. The only problem with Roseanne’s story is that she could not remember “Fathead’s” real name.

Deputy Ospina then made contact with 38-year-old Melissa Rue Wentworth-Barr who did not want to speak with him but she did state several times that the black bookbag and all its contents were hers. Barr continued to mumble throughout the interview and would not make eye contact with Deputy Ospina.

A search of the bookbag revealed a spoon with white powder residue and three used hypodermic needles. The white powder tested positive for heroin, as did the needles.

Barr was taken into custody and charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and a controlled substance. Barr is currently held without bond due to an outstanding warrant out of North Carolina.

It’s unknown if “Fathead” ever existed.

  • Chances are, if you cannot make eye contact with the person you are speaking with, you have something to hide.

    • Or they are very ugly!

    • Unless you are head of hearing in which case you read lips. Can still hae eye contact when you are the speaker. so that is no real excuse.

    • People may avoid contact because of lack of confidence and a low esteem that makes them feel inferior to others especially the law. I so hate the cops assume that a person is lying because of no eye contact. There are also medical reasons, neuroticism for one. Some people are uncomfortable making eye contact with anyone. I’d be in a world of trouble if I assumed my patients weren’t making eye contact with me because they had something to hide. Quit the assumptions!!

    Don’t re remember this one. The one sister was murdered & dumped on the curve on sunshine Grove Rd. Back in the day. Everyone knew about it. Hernando wasn’t so no big. The father had a BIG tree service before he died & the family went to sh!t. Sad story. From my UI understanding LISA WENTWORTH is a junkie also. Pitiful

    • If I recall, Gary Bushell went to trial and was acquited. He got a change of venue, I was surprised the Wentworths didn’t wood chipper Bushell, but he booked as soon as they released him.

    • Who the hell or what the hell gives you the right to speak of this family in that manner. No family needs to be reminded of the tragedy that had befallen them. You are with no doubt a selfish, heartless piece of shit with nothing better to do with your time.. Its sad to know that there are actually people like yourself walking the planet.. Don’t forget that suicide is always an option. its not too late.

      • Um, I don’t think they need me to remind them. This story is 4 days old. It alittle late. 4:30am????SUNDAY

      • Talk that to the junkies. This family is nothing but a bunch of losers and junkies who are ruining others lives. How dare you tell anyone to commit suicide. You need some serious help. Get of the junk and go to bed!! Wentworth Tree service was operated by a bunch of dopers after daddy died. They worked for cheap to get beer and dope money. I know this as the truth for they removed 8 trees out of my yard and told me that they wanted beer and dope. Losers all of the Wentworths if they are related or not. Check out Michelle too. She’s a known drug dealer. Junkies and dealers who laugh when they destroy families. Michelle even mentioned at a funeral that I was at, while she was laughing that she was proud to have hooked so many young people on Roxy’s. They get the talk that they so deserve.
