Mutual Combat Leads to Couple’s Arrest, Wife Tired of Cheating Husband

SPRING HILL – Jealous rage got the best of a Spring Hill woman last night but her suspected cheating husband stood his ground and both ended up behind bars.

According to reports, deputies responded to 1250 Glendale Avenue, where they made contact with 43-year-old Anthony Pilotti and his wife of 15-years, 48-year-old Holly Rich.

Pilotti told Deputy Vincent Mascitelli that he was having issues with his motorcycle, which caused him to be late coming home. Pilotti says that’s when Rich slapped him in the head with both hands, multiple times. She also destroyed several items in the garage during the altercation. Mascitelli says Pilotti had red marks on his face, consistent with being slapped.

Mascitelli then made contact with Rich who said she was sick of her husband cheating on her with a 25-year-old girl. Rich admitted to destroying items in the residence but says Pilotti hit and grabbed her arm, and then threw her into a chair. Rich did have bruising on her arms, consistent with being grabbed, according to Mascitelli.

Deputy Mascitelli charged both with Domestic Battery and transported them to the Hernando County Jail. Rich and Pilotti are held on $5,000 bond each and will not be allowed to post bond until 3:00 p.m. today.

During the booking process Rich yelled across the room to her husband and said “I hope you’re f***ing happy!”

The couple’s arrest raises two questions, as it pertains to domestic violence laws. Florida is a mandatory arrest state, which means that when there are allegations of physical contact during a domestic dispute, an arrest must be made. In most cases the “primary aggressor” is charged, which raises the first question; why were both arrested in this case, if Rich was the first to make physical contact?

The second issue is even more unusual. In most cases, as with this one, the Judge ordered both defendants to have no contact with each other upon their release. So, the question is; who has possession of their residence? Does it come down to who can get back the residence first after they are released? Could they both be arrested again if they show up at the same time?

We are waiting on a response from the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office for clarification on certain laws regarding mutual domestic violence arrests.

  • I know both of these people personally. I can honestly tell you they have not had a happy marriage for a very long time, but both are very good people in their own way. I feel so bad for the situation, and I wish them the best, but I also believe that the best is getting away from each other. No one is perfect, everyone has done things that they are ashamed of, and I’m sure that they are feeling the same way right now about what has happened. Please leave them alone and try to give them some privacy people. You can have your own opinions but keep them to yourself.

  • The world has become a cesspool of immorality. Look at the Clinton’s. When politicians make little headlines for their infidelity and lies while the media focuses on tax returns that none of them could possibly understand. Many of the American people have taken the attitude that if it feels good do it. They have stopped caring about the consequences of their actions.

    • Are you seriously reading and taking the time to comment on what these people think? I don’t care if you do or don’t cheat. If y’all breeak every item in your home or smack each other around . I find when I’m insecure and my husband proves to me why I shouldn’t be it plays out so much better than when he shrugs his shoulders and blows me off. Food for thought.

  • My husband is one of the people who called the police on these two. This man was inside of his garage screaming “help me- call 911” over and over at the top of his lungs. They are renters and just moved in a few months back…
    At one point he ran across the street to my next door neighbors house banging on the door and yelling for them to call the police. They did call as well and both the husband and wife were arrested because they beat up each other. He wheeled his motorcycle down the street and she left the house walking the other direction when the police came. (She dropped something in the road -beer??) couldn’t tell.
    This afternoon the husband was at the house walking around the garage on his phone talking loudly to someone inspecting the damage. No sign of the woman.
    The cops said this is the THIRD time they were called out to this house and most recently Sat night. I’m keeping my doors locked because these crazy people need to leave!!

  • Glen, how can you say they need compassion and empathy? She struck him……she needs tospend time in jail. He struck her…….He needs to spend time in jail. They are old enough to know the consequences of striking your spouse is jail. If they can’t control their emotions, maybe the time in jail will allow them to rethink their relationship. How will feeling sorry for them actually help them? It won’t!
