COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. – A Naples man was arrested Sunday morning and faces a battery charge after spitting on and pushing a woman who was holding a baby, according to his arrest report.

Jeremy Buchman, 33, was having breakfast at his home when the victim — whose identity is protected under Marsy’s Law — asked if he had taken his medication. Buchman is going through addiction treatment and is prescribed medicine to help him, according to an incident report from the Collier County Sheriff’s Office.

The victim told deputies that Buchman has been addicted to Kratom for the past three years, according to the report.

The question made Buchman upset and he threw a pill bottle which caused pills to spill out of the bottle. An argument between Buchman and the victim escalated and Buchman shoved the victim while she was holding a baby, according to the report.

The victim also accused Buchman of spitting in her face.

After the argument, the victim tried to call 911 from her cell phone, but Buchman took the phone and threw it, the report said.

Buchman is also accused of unplugging a landline jack to stop the victim from calling for help.

When deputies arrived at the scene, they found the victim was upset and crying. The victim told deputies that Buchman left the house in his black Toyota 4Runner.

Deputies caught up with Buchman at his father’s house, where he was questioned about the incident. He denied ever hitting or spitting at the victim.

Buchman was arrested for battery and transported to the Naples Jail Center for processing.
