Violence at Ralph Carter Park
At about 7:35 p.m. on Nov. 20, a deputy was dispatched to Ralph Carter Park along Rymfire Drive in Palm Coast in reference to a fight. Sheriff’s dispatch, according to the police report, reported “that approximately 50 black males were physically fighting a single individual.” The fight had broken up when the deputy arrived.

The victim, according to the report, “had a bloody face and appeared to have a swollen eye and nose.” An ambulance was called. The 16 year old told the cop that about two months earlier, a couple of juveniles had stolen his bike from his residence. His father was able to locate the bike at another location.

An Odd Incident on Parkview Drive in Palm Coast
On On Nov. 21 at 6:41 p.m., a deputy responded to 319 Parkview Drive in Palm Coast, where dispatch told him two men were talking about narcotics and a firearm. The deputy reports: “Upon arrival, I observed a white male standing in the driveway. He approached me and identified himself as Henry Campora, who resides at 319 Parkview Drive. Henry stated that his roommate, Konstantin Shurgigin, requested money to purchase synthetic marijuana. Henry refused to give the money, an argument ensued and Konstantin threw a chair through the back window of Henry’s motor vehicle, a 1986 white Volvo. Henry then advised that I need to Baker Act Konstantin and/or take him to jail for vandalizing his Volvo. Henry then stated that Konstantin was in possession of a firearm and it was unknown if he was still inside the residence or if he exited through the rear. Deputy Moore maintained a visual on the front of the residence, while I approached the rear. I observed Konstantin sitting in a chair on the Patio. I identified myself and requested that he show me his hands. Konstantin complied and advised he was not in possession of a firearm. A pat down of Konstantin revealed no firearm and I advised Konstantin of my investigation. Konstantin advised that he did have an argument with Henry but denied attempting to obtain money for narcotics use. Konstantin continued to advise that he only smokes legal stuff, such as incense. Konstantin then advised that he attempted to get away from Henry, by exiting the residence through the front door. Henry following Konstantin and continued to argue, resulting in Konstantin throwing a chair threw the back window of the Volvo. Konstantin stated that he and Henry argue all the time and he would pay for the damages to the window. During my investigation with Konstantin, I determined that he did not meet criteria for a Law Enforcement Baker Act. I made further contact with Henry and ascertained if he wished to complete a voluntary statement form and pursue criminal mischief charges against Konstantin. Henry advised that if I make Konstantin leave the residence, he would not pursue charges. I advised Henry that Konstantin is the homeowner; therefore I could not make him leave. I further advised Henry of his options and he did not wish to pursue the incident and requested to leave for the evening.The firearm in question, is registered to Henry, was never used against either individual and was located in a bedroom. Henry secured his firearm and left the residence.”
Drunk Driving, a Crash, Injuries, and an Arrest
A deputy responded to a two-vehicle crash on Nov. 19 at 9:16 p.m. in the area of 2546 Country Road 305. While talking to Jimmy Chavis, the 65-year-old driver of a 1999 Dodge truck, the deputy could smell alcohol. Chavis’s eyes were glossy and his speech was slurred, and when he was not leaning against the truck he was swaying and would have to reach out to the side of his truck to maintain his balance. “I asked the driver for his driver’s license and he handed me his social security card,” the deputy reports. “I asked him where his driver’s license was and he advised me the officer’s took it last night when he was arrested for DUI.” One passenger in the other vehicle was transported to the hospital with back pain. There was extensive damage to the vehicle that was owned by Danielle Sherman. A witness said she was north bound on Country Road 305 and was traveling behind a green pick-up truck that was swerving side to side. She said he swerved into oncoming traffic and collided with another vehicle. “Once the crash investigation was complete,” the deputy reports, “I conducted a DUI investigation. I asked Jimmy Chavis to come to level ground so field sobriety test could be conducted. As he started walking from the truck he fell back and had to catch himself with his hands against the truck. He regained his balance and then stumbled to level ground. I asked him if he had any medical condition that would prohibit him from doing field sobriety exercises. He advised yes. I asked him what they were and he responded by saying, ‘I’m old.'” He was not able to perform various sobriety tests and was placed under arrest for DUI with property damage.
It was 11:36 p.m. on Nov. 18 when a deputy responded to the Epic Theater in Palm Coast’s Town Center, where several people were standing out front. The deputy reports: “I made contact with Shanica Harper (victim) on scene and she advised that she and her boyfriend, Shawn Pingshaw (other), were seeing a movie in the theater, when several juveniles began throwing ice at them. She stated that she exchanged some words with them at that time. She then stated that when she exited the theater, one female [deleted] began arguing with her trying to provoke a fight. Harper stated that she then said, ‘We can pop it off if
you want.’ She stated that [deleted] then began swinging at her. She further advised that several other unknown females began jumping on her as she fell to the ground and began kicking her. Harper stated that she had her purse with her during the course of the fighting and went to hand it to Pingshaw. She stated that she didn’t see anyone take the purse from her and that the purse went missing sometime during the altercation. It was later recovered on the other side of some parked vehicles parked directly in front of the theater, approximately 100 feet from where the altercation had occurred. The purse had its contents scattered about and was later reported missing Harper’s cell phone, bank debit card, and social security card. Harper advised that her bank is Bank of America and her cell phone is a Sprint Samsung Replenish. […] I also asked if Harper if she had any injuries and if she wanted medical attention. She advised that she did want medical attention, but I was unable to see any physical signs of injury on her person. Harper stated that she was in pain on her right side of her back and neck area. I then had dispatch send a medical unit to the scene. Pingshaw stated that Harper was being jumped on by several females and so he stepped in and pushed several of them off of her. He stated that he got hit on his forehead by an unknown person. He stated that most of the people involved had already fled the scene before law enforcement’s arrival. I observed a red bruise on Pingshaw’s forehead. […] Harper also stated that she did not wish to pursue charges against Ariana at that time.”
