Pasco teacher charged with threatening husband with knife


Published:

BROOKSVILLE - A Pasco teacher living in Brooksville was arrested early Sunday on charges that she threatened her husband with a kitchen knife, deputies said.

Amy Michelle Weaver, 38, of Southern Charm Circle, was charged with aggravated assault with a weapon without the intent to kill.

An arrest report shows she and her husband were both drunk in their master bedroom when an argument started over her not wanting him to watch TV.

Weaver's husband told deputies Weaver tried to turn the TV off with the remote, so he threw the remote under the bed, deputies said.

The report states Weaver's husband then picked the TV up, threw it on the ground, and stomped on it before leaving the house.

Weaver went into the kitchen, grabbed a knife, and followed him outside, presumably to cut his tires and prevent him from leaving, two witnesses in the home told deputies.

Weaver's husband approached her to try and calm her down, but she raised the knife over her head with both hands and "made a downward stabbing motion," he told deputies, according to the report.

Weaver's husband said he feared for his life and put his hands up before grabbing the knife out of her hands, deputies said.

Weaver cut her hand and her husband cut his thumb during the scuffle, according to the report.

Weaver's husband got in his truck with the knife and a witness and went to his mom's house and called police, deputies said.

Weaver was held at Hernando County Jail on $1,000 bond.

Florida Department of Education records show Weaver received certificates July 2012 for both Elementary Education and English for Speakers of Other Languages, or ESOL, and is with Pasco County School District.
