Sex Toy Altercation

NOVEMBER 29--An “altercation over sex toys and a laptop” resulted in the arrest Monday evening of a Florida woman on a domestic battery charge, police report.

According to an arrest affidavit, Lindsay Hensley-Clark, 38, struck her beau, Chad Scerbo, in the face during a late-night dispute inside Hensley-Clark’s apartment in Palm Harbor, a Tampa suburb.

“During an altercation over sex toys and a laptop, Lindsay and Chad got into a verbal argument,” a sheriff’s deputy reported. “During that argument, Lindsay admitted to slapping Chad as she was upset over what Chad had said.”

The arrest affidavit does not detail what Chad said, nor does it further describe the sex toy/laptop altercation.

Pictured above, Hensley-Clark was arrested on a misdemeanor dating violence charge. She spent about 12 hours in custody before being released yesterday on her own recognizance.

At a court hearing yesterday, Hensley-Clark pleaded not guilty to the battery charge, while a judge issued an order allowing her to maintain contact with Scerbo.

Hensley-Clark is president and artistic director of the not-for-profit Tampa Ballet Theatre, for which Scerbo is a marketing advisor. Hensley-Clark also owns a ballet school affiliated with the professional dance company. (1 page)
