Woman Threatens to “Eliminate Problems” After Judge Refuses to Lift Domestic Violence Injunction
ZEPHYRHILLS – A botched day in court led to one woman’s social media rant that landed her behind bars.
According to Pasco County Officials, 33-year-old Jeannie Lynn Bowman appeared before Judge Mary Handsel on August 1st to request a domestic violence injunction be terminated. Bowman, who is the petitioner in the case, submitted a motion to allow oral arguments during the hearing, but Judge Handsel denied her request and refused to lift the injunction. Bowman was so angry over the decision that she immediately posted on her Facebook page, “Jeannie Lynn Bowman is feeling angry. If anyone needs me, I’ll be at the top of a clocktower eliminating problems.” Bowman’s posts grew more disturbing with statements like, “Searching for one within sniping range of the courthouse, open to suggestion,” and, “Well, it’s that or homicide, so yeah. . . Cheers.”
Investigators say Bowman made several calls to an inmate at the Land O’ Lakes Detention Center, where she was overheard saying that she knew where Judge Handsel’s daughter plays softball. Bowman admitted to making the threats and apologized, stating she would never carry them out.
Bowman was taken into custody and charged with felony written threats to kill or do bodily harm.
Bowman is held on a $10,000 bond.
