Florida Woman Chases Man With Knife And Fire Extinguisher During Fight, Pulls Fire Alarm, Triggering Sprinklers Leading To $300k In Damages

A Florida woman who chased a man with a knife and fire extinguisher during a fight, pulled a fire alarm, triggering sprinklers that led to $300,000 worth of damages at a Fort Myers Beach condominium, deputies report.

According to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office, Autumn Fields, 32, of Ormond Beach, was arrested on four charges linked to the incident. 

A witness at the Lovers Key Beach Club condominiums told deputies that Fields had chased him with a knife and fire extinguisher. During a fight, she pulled the fire alarm, activating the nine-story building’s sprinklers, which saturated the hallways. 

Investigators estimate the damage at $300,000.  

The complex, at 8710 Estero Blvd., offers vacation rentals on Big Carlos Pass, with views of the Gulf of Mexico. Expedia rates it as a three-star resort.

When deputies conducted a search warrant on the suspect’s unit, they found 4.67 grams of methamphetamine, the report said. An average quarter or a raspberry weighs 5.4 grams for comparison. They arrested Fields who was booked into the Lee County Jail.

She is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, criminal mischief over $1,000, grand theft of a fire extinguisher, and possession of methamphetamine.
