Marquise J. Woolbright, 26, made a plea deal and received a sentence of three years probation after committing several violent crimes.
In 2017, Woodlright’s girlfriend had driven to visit him and caught him red-handed cheating with another woman.
As his girlfriend was leaving, the other woman’s vehicle was parked outside so the girlfriend decided to scratch it. She then drove away.
Woolbright then chased his girlfriend down in another vehicle and fired multiple shots at her. Several of the rounds struck his girlfriend’s vehicle.
When Woolbright was arrested, officers discovered that he had an outstanding arrest warrant for Domestic Battery by Strangulation, which involved the same woman he fired shots at.
Following the shooting, Woolbright was arrested and ordered to stay away from his girlfriend. He violated the order a few days later. He made contact with the woman and they argued about him cheating and he was trying to convince her not to testify. During the argument, he punched her in the mouth while she was holding her toddler son. Police said he attempted to punch her a second time, but instead, struck the child in the face with a closed fist.
Woolbright was arrested and charged with Violating Pretrial Conditions, Tampering with a Witness, Domestic Battery, and Cruelty Toward a Child.
In a separate incident, Woolbright chased down a woman who was on the phone with 911 to report that he had just assaulted her. As the woman attempted to pull into the Ocala Police Department parking lot, Woolbright slammed into the side of the woman’s vehicle. He then jumped out of his car and punched her in the face and mouth while holding her by her hair.
According to the arrest affidavit, he also threatened to kill the woman.
In 2012, Woolbright was arrested and charged with Lewd and Lascivious Battery on a Child Under 16.
