Daytona Beach Police Chief Craig Capri admitted Hattie Reynolds probably wasn’t a threat, but said domestic violence law requires that an arrest be made. The chief’s point runs counter to the opinions of two local defense attorneys and Florida’s domestic violence statue.

The slender grandma, listed at 5 feet tall in her arrest report, said in a call to dispatch Saturday morning that she was tired of her granddaughter staying in bed all day soaking up the air conditioning she pays to run. Calling the non-emergency number, she asked for police help.

“I got a gran in my bed and I can’t ... get her out from my bed,” said Reynolds, calling from her home on Loomis Avenue. “I ain’t got nothing to pay bill on air condition all the time for her to go into the room.”

Reynolds said she wanted her 46-year-old granddaughter, Janeen Williams, out of her room.

“She won’t get out of my bed. I want her out of the bed, I don’t want to get myself in trouble ... cause she don’t listen after me,” the great-grandmother said.
