The Catoosa County News - - FRONT PAGE - By Adam Cook

A Ca­toosa County woman con­victed of ev­i­dence tam­per­ing in 2014 has been ar­rested again af­ter she al­legedly tried to run over her daugh­ter’s boyfriend with a truck, po­lice say.

Ac­cord­ing to the Fort Oglethorpe Po­lice De­part­ment:

Davida Kaye Cay­lor, 36, of Sunny Breeze Lane in Ringgold, was ar­rested March 4 on charges of sim­ple as­sault, bat­tery, and party to a crime.

Cay­lor is be­ing held in jail with­out bond due to vi­o­la­tion of her cur­rent pro­ba­tion.

The al­leged in­ci­dent oc­curred dur­ing the early morn­ing hours of March 4, at an apart­ment com­plex on Way­side Drive.

Po­lice Sgt. Michael Can­non was dis­patched to the apart­ment re­gard­ing a do­mes­tic dis­pute that in­volved Cay­lor al­legedly at­tack­ing a young man with her fists, and then Cay­lor fol­low­ing a him through the neigh­bor­hood try­ing to run him over with a truck, re­ports show.

The apart­ment where the in­ci­dent took place be­longed to Cay­lor’s daugh­ter who told po­lice she woke up to the sounds of Cay­lor and her brother ar­gu­ing in her liv­ing room.

Wit­nesses said Cay­lor then ran up­stairs and be­gan punch­ing and curs­ing at her daugh­ter’s boyfriend who was asleep.

The boyfriend ran from the res­i­dence in only his un­der­wear, and claimed Cay­lor and her sis­ter at­tempted to run him over.

The vic­tim told po­lice he ran to­ward Ft. Town Drive where he ob­served Cay­lor’s sis­ter, Dav­nia Black, in her red Chevro­let Colorado sit­ting at the end of Way­side Drive.

“He stated that Davida Cay­lor jumped into the truck and that the truck then sped to­ward him at a high rate of speed,” Can­non said.

The young man was able to cut through a yard in the com­plex to avoid get­ting hit, but did say that he feared for his life dur­ing the whole or­deal. Of­fi­cers ob­served both of the man’s eyes to be swollen and a small cut near his right eye.

When Can­non fi­nally spoke with Cay­lor, she said she went to the apart­ment to con­front her son about stay­ing at his sis­ter’s apart­ment, and that a verbal ar­gu­ment broke out.

Cay­lor claimed she did not at­tack her daugh­ter’s boyfriend at all.

“Ms. Cay­lor stated she be­came an­gry and went up stairs to wake her daugh­ter,” Can­non said. “She de­nied hav­ing hit the vic­tim or try­ing to run over him with a truck.”

Cay­lor did ad­mit that her sis­ter, does in­deed own a red Chevy Colorado truck, re­ports show.

FOPD of­fi­cials say war­rants have been taken out for Black’s ar­rest.

Cay­lor made head­lines in 2013 when she ac­cused a Her­itage High School ad­min­is­tra­tor of strik­ing the hand of her teenage son with tele­phone re­ceiver dur­ing a meet­ing for dis­ci­plinary ac­tion.

Dur­ing that whole or­deal, Cay­lor went on so­cial me­dia with al­leged pho­tos of the boy’s swollen and bruised hand, which were later deemed unau­then­tic.

Cay­lor was ar­rested later that spring and went to trial in May 2014 where a jury of eight women and four men found her guilty of tam­per­ing with ev­i­dence, mak­ing false state­ments, and ob­struct­ing an of­fi­cer.

Cay­lor was sen­tenced to three years pro­ba­tion and was also re­quired to com­plete 100 hours of com­mu­nity ser­vice as well as pay fines and court costs in the amount of $1,487.50.
