Uner Arrested

On July 23, 2004, 44-year-old Linda Uner was arrested on charges of
aggravated assault, battery and attempted escape.

Deputies were called to the area of 672 Turtle Lane in reference to a
battery. Upon the arrival of Sheriffs Deputies, it was discovered that
there had been an apparent ongoing dispute regarding the parking of a work
truck on the lawn 656 Turtle Lane, the residence, of Ms. Uner.

Deputies spoke with Mr. Stephen Wilson who had reported that Linda Uner and
her husband had approached them in a vehicle. Wilson then stated that Uner
got out of her car and approached Mr. Wilson, shouting and striking Wilson,
she then went back to her vehicle and returned with a small handgun
threatening to shoot him.

According to Uner, Mr. Wilson has been asked on several occasions to park
his vehicle somewhere other than her lawn.

After placing Uner under arrest for aggravated assault and battery and
putting her in the rear of a patrol car, Uner was able to remove the
handcuffs and came rushing out of the back of the patrol car. She was
stopped by officers on scene and transported to the Hendry County Jail.

Uner was charged with 1 count of aggravated assault, 1 count of battery and
1 count of attempted escape. She was released on $5,000.00 bond.

Update: According to Hendry criminal court records, on March 20, 2006 Uner plead guilty to aggravated assault and resisting arrest, She was ordered to have no contact with victim Stephen Wilson. Court costs and costs of prosecution were assessed of $395. The Judge withheld adjudication and she was placed on probation for 5 years on the aggravated assault count and 1 year on resisting arrest.  On September 18, 2008 an order was filed to terminate probation early.

    Despite the fact that we have been friends for many years I strongly object to your continued defammation of my wife Linnda Uner in your July 2004 story. It's inaccurate and defammatory as well as over four years old and has negative consequences. Please remove before I have to seek counsel.
