Woman Shooting At Cats Complaint Said

Scary Situation As Deputies Face Woman Holding Pistol
OKEECHOBEE, FL. -- An Okeechobee woman was arrested after a complaint of shooting at cats, leading to two Sheriff's Deputies facing the woman who held a semi-automatic pistol pointing at them.

On 10/25/13, deputies responded to 2566 Hwy. 98 North, Okeechobee, Florida. The complainant advised that a neighbor was shooting stray cats. Deputies approached the residence and knocked. A female voice asked “Who is it?”.

Deputy Collier advised the female “Sheriff’s Office.” She would not open the door. Deputy Collier and Deputy Lamb approached the rear of the residence, while back-up Deputy John Hazy stayed at the front door.

The door then flew open and Stallworth walked out of the front door with a black semi-automatic pistol pointed at Deputy Hazy, and blurted out an obscenity at the deputies. At this time, all three deputies drew their side arms and ordered Stallworth to drop the weapon. Stallworth looked at the officers and then tossed the gun inside the residence.

Stallworth was placed under arrest, without further incident.

Catrela Denise Stallworth, age 33, 2566 Hwy. 98 North, Apt. 5, Okeechobee, Florida, was charged with Aggravated Assault With a Deadly Weapon on Law Enforcement Officer

Bond: The subject was released after posting $7,500 bond

Sheriff Paul C. May said of this arrest, “This is about as close as it could be to an Officer being shot or having to shoot someone. I am very glad that neither one happened and I am glad no one got hurt.”

No further information to be released at this time, said Michele Bell, PIO.
