FEBRUARY 27--A Florida Man was arrested yesterday on a felony battery charge after allegedly dumping a bucket of cow manure over the head of a victim, police report.

According to a complaint affidavit, Jose Ramirez-Callejas, 47, attacked the victim at a dairy farm in Crystal Springs, a community about 30 miles north of Tampa. The complaint does not indicate whether Ramirez-Callejas or the victim work at Spoto’s Palm River Dairy.

Investigators allege that Ramirez-Callejas “scooped the cow manure into the bucket and dumped it over the victim’s head” early Wednesday afternoon.
