Woman goes berserk at Weeki Wachee River | Crime
Spring Hill, Florida -- What was supposed to be a nice day on the river with her two kids became a day from hell for one mother after another woman in her rented canoe reportedly went crazy.
Hernando Sheriff's deputies say Barbara Van Patten was riding along in the rented canoe with Shana, Shana's two children, and a tour guide when she decided to jump out of the canoe and head into restricted waters.
The tour guide then called the water park manager David Hramika to help. When Hramika arrived, Van Patten, who appeared to be intoxicated, went back to the canoe and got inside, but she wasn't happy about it, and rocked the boat until it flipped over dumping everyone into the water.
Hramika grabbed the kids and put them back into the up-righted canoe, along with their mother, but this time put Van Patten into his canoe. While trying to get back to the park, he told police she started calling him names and slapped him in the chest several times. She also continued to rock the boat to try to flip it. At one point, she even got her hands on David's phone and chucked it into the river.
Once they got back to the park and deputies took over, they reported Van Patten, 36, became combative and dragged her feet as she was taking to the patrol car. She was finally taken away and charged with battery, resisting arrest without violence and false ID by arrest.
