So, it looks like I haven't blogged in well over a month. For those who read this blog regularly, I'm terribly sorry! Life just got busy last month with a trip to Las Vegas slipped in there. I will try to do better. I promise!
Anyway, have you ever had that ex that just won't go away. Like the Motley Crue song said, "Don't Go Away Mad, Just Go Away!" Well, this story takes place in Ocala, Florida....Yes, I said Florida. I can't really make fun of Ocala, though, since we have family that live down there. So, a man in Ocala got more than he bargained for when he decided it was time to end his relationship with his girlfriend of three and a half years.
According to Ocala police, the man broke off his relationship with the woman near the end of November. On December 3, the man returned home from work only to find that his ex-girlfriend, later identified as 22-year-old Melissa Ostrander, had made her way into his home and was waiting for him. Reports say that Ostrander's sole intention was to argue with the man about leaving her. Dude! Just move on!
The man told police that he did not want to argue or discuss the relationship with her. Instead, the man left his residence and drove to his sister's house to get away from Ostrander. While visiting with his family at his sister's, he heard a car pull up in the driveway. Seconds later, Ostrander barged into the house and began to yell at the man about their break-up. Wow! I have to say.....This is nuts! Ostrander then grabbed the man by his shirt and attempted to pull him to the floor. That's when the man's sister grabbed Ostrander by her throat, and shoved her outside. It must be cool to have a sister who is an MMA fighter! The family said it appeared that Ostrander was going to leave, but she ran toward the house and again tried to regain entry when an unidentified person then pushed Ostrander, which kept her from entering the house. It must be cool to be related to a WWE wrestler too!
Ostrander went back to her vehicle, and thinking she was leaving and the coast was clear, the man exited the residence and began talking with someone at the rear of his vehicle. That's when Ostrander positioned her vehicle in their direction, revved her engine, and accelerated toward them. The man, along with the person he was speaking with, were able to jump out of the way before Ostrander slammed into the man's car. The impact caused the man's car to propel forward and hit the residence. Ostrander then "threw" the car in reverse, accelerated again, and struck another car that had arrived at the residence and then fled the scene. What is it with women thinking it's okay to use their cars to play smash up derby? Wasn't there video of this on Black Friday too?
Police said there was a juvenile sitting in the passenger seat of one of the vehicles, but he was not injured. Police found Ostrander at her residence a short time later because that's the place I would have went to if I committed a crime and acted like an asshole. No sarcasm there whatsoever.
Ostrander told the police that she argued with her ex because they "have to raise a child together," and got upset that he had broken off the relationship. Ostrander was arrested and charged with Burglary, Domestic Battery, Domestic Aggravated Assault, Aggravated Assault, and Felony Criminal Mischief. She was released on an $11,000 bond with a court date set for January 3. Here's the kicker....Back in April 2014, Ostrander was arrested for Domestic Battery. Five months later, she was arrested a second time and charged with Domestic Battery and two counts of Domestic Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon. Now, based on my math skills, if Ostrander was with this guy for 3 and a half years, that means it was "him" that she beat up back in 2014 as well. Why would you stay with someone like this? How many times does she have to get arrested before she finally kills someone? I say put her away for good! The world would be a better place without this "Grimace"-looking piece of crap in it.
