Luz Zidziunas Jailed After Incident In Her Home
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Boca Raton resident Luz Zidziunas allegedly made a bad situation worse on Thursday when she pepper sprayed her husband as he was trying to discipline their daughter.
According to a police report reviewed by BocaNewsNow.com, the couple has a daughter who “has a mental illness which was causing her to scream in the hallway and while alone in her room.” As the girl’s dad tried to calm her down, the couple’s other daughter tried to help. But the dad told her to go to her room — which she apparently was unwilling to do. So the dad tried to “escort her to her room in a non-violent disciplinary manner,” according to the police report.

That’s when the situation went from bad to worse. According to police:
“Luz Zidziunas said (her husband) ‘chased’ the girl around the apartment and grabbed her hair, so she sprayed (her husband) in the face with a chemical agent. According to Luz, no other acts of violence were committed during the incident.”
Wrote police: “Based on my investigation, my observation of (the victim’s) irritated eyes/face, the statements provided, and the overall totality of the circumstances, I found probable cause to charge Luz with simple battery. Specifically, Luz actually and intentionally touched or struck (her husband) against his will by spraying a chemical agent in his face. Luz was placed under arrested and transported to the Boca Raton Police Department for completion of arrest paperwork. She was then transported to the Palm Beach County Jail.”
Luz Zidziunas, 38, was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail at 11:07 p.m. Thursday night. She remains in jail mid-day Friday. Bond has not yet been set. The incident occurred in the 400 block of East Palmetto Park Road.
