MANATEE — An 18-year-old has been charged with battery on a person over the age of 65 after she allegedly soaked her 85-year-old grandfather with an outside garden hose while he was sitting in the living room of a home in the 3000 block of Florida Boulevard.
The incident occurred 11:53 a.m. Monday, according to a Manatee County Sheriff’s Office report.
Bailey Guthy was arguing and verbally abusive to the elderly victim, the report states.
She eventually went outside, got the hose, walked inside the home and sprayed her grandfather. The furniture and the rug inside the home were also soaked, according to the report.
Guthy was being held without bond in the Manatee County jail Tuesday, according to the jail website.
