A woman escaped Friday from her violent, gun-wielding boyfriend, according to the Volusia County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies said they arrested Floyd on charges of aggravated assault with a firearm, false imprisonment, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of ammunition by a convicted felon and simple battery.

Deputies say Reichle's boyfriend, Jeremy Floyd, beat her Wednesday, threatened her with a gun and kept her locked in their home for two days. She says Floyd would not let her leave, and when the two wrestled over a gun, two shots were fired.

He was armed with his handgun, and the victim said Floyd threatened to kill her and her family, deputies said.
