Suspect in elder abuse case denies allegations

Local News

HEADLAND, Ala. (WDHN) —  Kelly Floyd was arrested and charged with second-degree elderly abuse/neglect earlier this month.

According to reports, the alleged victim was her 74-year-old father, but she said this wasn’t the case.

“I’m sorry; this just all hurts me so badly,” Floyd said.

According to Floyd, when she knocked on her parents’ door, an argument began that escalated quickly.

“He came to the door, and he was really mad, and he shoved me backward with his arm right here and over the railing or up against the porch,” she said.

She told WDHN she was frightened by her dad’s actions.

“I was a swing and doing all kinda stuff to try to get him off me,” Floyd said. “I acted out of fear.”

Floyd said once her mugshot was released, the cyberbullying began.

“My face has been plastered all over social media, and the news I was being threatened and bullied, and just because you’re arrested doesn’t mean you’re guilty,” Ford said.

She said she is faithful that her family will move past this whole ordeal.

So far, no court date has been set. We will attempt to get in contact with Floyd’s father as soon as possible.
