Woman Charged with Felony Child Abuse After Running Over Bicycle

BROOKSVILLE – A Brooksville woman is charged with felony child abuse, after a family dispute led to her running over a teenage boy’s bicycle with her car.

Officials say 49-year-old Denise Michelle Davis was having issues the victim who is presumed to Davis’ teenage son, over her romantic relationship with another minor. Officials are not revealing the relationship between Davis and the minor victim, the identities of the minors, or the gender of the second minor involved.

According to reports, on Saturday Davis located the victim in the company of the other minor and parent, Dana Buck.  Davis followed the trio from an unspecified location, back to her residence on Wallien Drive, where she proceeded to block the roadway with her car.

The minor victim attempted to leave on a bicycle but Davis used her car to run over the bike, causing him to fall. The victim was not injured in the crash but the bicycle was lodged under the vehicle. Dana Buck attempted to intervene and was subsequently pushed by Davis.

During an interview with Sheriff’s Deputies, Davis admitted to running over the bicycle and pushing Dana Buck. Davis was booked into the Hernando County Jail and charged with Domestic Child Abuse and Simple Battery. Davis is free on $2,000 bond.

CORRECTION: In our original report we identified the minor victim as a female. We have since learned that the minor victim is a male. We apologize for the error.

  • This is a tragic event that happened to a mother who is a single parent trying to discipline a teenage boy and deal with a first time relationship for the teenage boy. This mother feels like she is in the right when clearly she has gone to far when it comes to using an automobile to discipline your child. Prayers for this family because it looks to me common sense is not being used by the mother.

  • Sounds horrible. Also sounds like a mom who does not know what to do with her hormonal teenager and maybe has gone off the deep end. Maybe some family assistance and counseling and possible meds for mom too. Where is the father in all this??? So easy to blame all this on the mom, but there are many moms in Hernando county that are left to handle raising kids on their own and sometimes, without support, can lead to this extreme behavior. I hope the son is ok and the family can come together to help. A little compassion can go a long way. Hope things get better for this family.

  • I too know this woman, and yes her mental health has declined very much since I’ve known her. She’s abusively controlling and jealous that her son is happy with his girlfriend. Denise needs therapy and possible meds to help her heal. The sister is doing what she can to get her brother in to a safe and stable environment …..need lots of prayers for young man, sister, and even girlfriend.

  • The only thing unsettling about this whole thing is that a 16 year old child is now displaced and lost and his sister is trying her hardest to get him so they can get back on track. This woman has lost her damn mind and has been losing it for about a year. This is no fault of her son whom only wanted a normal teenage relationship with his girlfriend without his mother getting jealous.

  • She is smirking she is a crazy. The minor doesn’t have 6 kids and this article is wrong it was her own son she ran over. This lady got what she deserved except shes free. Scum like this trying to hurt their own kids is sick. And for the record. She pushed herself to far by being a horrid person to both her kids and grandchild. If you don’t personally know her i wouldnt say aloud you feel.sorry. she makes people feel bad for her but we all see through this act. She plays the victim card and it’s bs. This woman needs a nut house. Baker act her ass. The things I have see and know i wish i could post so you don’t feel bad for this pathetic woman but I will not. Just hope god will rest her soul and maybe she love her kids again instead of trying to kill one and hurting the other so badly they left. This woman should have no.l pitty for her. Feel bad for the kids.

  • Smh she did get charged with domestic child abuse and simple battery, states in article. Child not injured thank goodness, but more to this if you read and re read, and draw your own conclusion . No I don’t know her As for the ones making fun of how she looks, if you look like Matthew McConaughey , Bruce Willis, Dierks Bentley or Denzel Washington, then speak . Beauty is only skin deep, but UGLY goes clear to the bone. People way to quick to judge on looks alone. I feel a little sorry for her, go ahead beat me up.idk. she obviously been pushed way too something VERY UNSETTLING TO HER.

  • I think some of you need to read the story again,she is charged with child abuse,becouse she ran the bike over while her daughter was riding it to get away from this lunatic omfg,i agree that parents need to disapline their kids but holy sh#t its never ok to intensionaly hit your or anyones child with a car.i hope she loses her kid she clearly is not fit to be a parent.again she ran her own child over with a car,i dont think she was arrested for damage to the bike.i think endangering the health and welfare of a child should be added to her charges.

    Monday, 11 July 2016, 7:22 pm
  • Well, she doesn’t look to upset over the charges. That looks like a smirk on her face

  • hello Ms. Davis… Jerry Springer here lol want to be on my show?

    Monday, 11 July 2016, 5:38 pm
  • I didn’t realize that the mother was 49 years old I thought that was the grandmother and I had to read the story twice wow. The golden years have not been good to her

    Monday, 11 July 2016, 5:10 pm
  • Wow, wonder if Hollywood could script this into a reality show

    Monday, 11 July 2016, 3:40 pm
  • Mmmm, only 49 years old? Rough life.

  • For all we know the new boyfriend already has six unsupported children. Even that wouldn’t be taken into account for why Davis was angry and that’s a flaw. Sometimes anger is justified but aggressive acts do need to be curtailed. Didn’t Davis buy the bike even if it was gifted? True, I wasn’t there but it seems the charges were overly done.

    Monday, 11 July 2016, 2:33 pm
    • I seriously doubt that the “other minor” would have “six kids”. lol
      A gift is a gift, so Davis had no right to destroy it.. j/s
