Flagler Beach, FL - A Flagler Beach man is arrested for the second time in a little more than 24 hours for entering the exclusion zone of his domestic violence victim. Flagler County Sheriff's deputies say 43-year-old Roy Carlisi went back to his victim's home just two hours after he being issued a pre-trial release with the condition of staying at least 500 feet away from her address.
FCSO deputies responded to the couple's home in Flagler Beach this past Sunday (June 9) around 11 a.m. Carlisi had told dispatch that there was an accident at the home and an ambulance was needed. Dispatch said Carlisi was uncooperative and hung up the phone on dispatch repeatedly when they asked for more information. Screaming could be heard in the background during the phone calls.
Deputies arrived at the home but no one responded when they rang the doorbell and knocked on the door. They could hear voices inside and when they looked through the front window, they could see Carlisi standing over the victim, his wife, who was sitting on the floor. He said several more things to the victim before answering the door.
Even though Carlisi had called for an ambulance, he told deputies that everything was fine and they would not be coming into his home. Deputies told him that due to the call to dispatch and current circumstances, they were coming in. Carlisi attempted to close the door in their face, which is when deputies forced entry into the home and detained Carlisi.
The victim told deputies that they had been arguing in the kitchen when Carlisi grabbed her by the throat, throwing her to the ground and banging her head repeatedly on the floor.
Deputies placed Carlisi under arrest. While searching him, they found one whole tooth and a piece of another in his pocket. When questioned, Carlisi said they belonged to the victim and that she had fallen in the kitchen.
The victim was taken to the hospital for treatment and Carlisi was taken to the Flagler County Jail, where he was charged with Battery Domestic violence, Assault, and Resisting Arrest without Violence.
Carlisi went before a judge the next day (June 10) and was issued a pre-trial release and outfitted with a Domestic Violence GPS ankle monitor. The victim's address was entered as an exclusion zone into the GPS system.
FCSO deputies say that less than two hours later, Carlisi returned to the home, also known as an exclusion zone for him. Dispatch was notified but when deputies responded, they found Carlisi at a Palm Coast address. When questioned, He first told deputies he didn't know he wasn't supposed to go to the residence. He also said he could not read the pre-trial release conditions because he did not have his glasses. Carlisi, of course, was rearrested for violating the conditions of his release.
“This is a great example of why the Domestic Violence ankle monitors are necessary and how they protect victims,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “This guy was arrested, told exactly what the conditions of his release were, and still went back to the home anyway. Thanks to this technology, he is being held
accountable. He is back in jail and the victim is not in danger.”
Carlisi is being held on no bond at the Flagler County Jail.
