Pasco County housing authority apartment manager resigns
DADE CITY -
A Pasco County Housing Authority employee has resigned her position as apartment manager at Dade Oaks after a confrontation with Pasco sheriff's deputies that resulted in her arrest.
Kandi Marie Vanover-Peters, 24, was charged with police obstruction and resisting arrest without violence after the April 18 incident.
Deputies said Vanover-Peters became irate when they arrived at the Dade Oaks apartment complex to interview a domestic battery suspect, according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office. Deputies said Vanover-Peters wanted a trespassing warning issued to the resident at the apartments who had been accused of domestic battery.
When deputies initially said they couldn't issue the warning, Vanover-Peters screamed expletives at them, deputies said. The report says deputies had to forcibly handcuff Vanover-Peters. A deputy fell on his right side as Vanover-Peters resisted attempts to walk her to a patrol car, the report states.
The Pinellas-Pasco State Attorney's office is still investigating the complaint.
Housing Authority Executive Director Dianne Morris said Vanover-Peters resigned with no notice and moved out of state. The authority has advertised for a new apartment manager for Dade Oaks.
