Clearwater, Florida - Police have arrested a man on charges he beat his wife with a baseball bat at a city hotel.

Jamel Lee Williams, 35, got into a verbal argument with his wife Monday inside their room at the Pleasant Inn, off Fort Harrison Ave., police said Tuesday, when he pushed her to the ground and began beating her in the head with his fist.

"The suspect then grabbed a metal baseball bat and continued to strike the victim with the bat as she lay on the floor," police said in a media alert.

Fearing for her safety, the victim did not report the incident until later in the day when she checked herself into the hospital for treatment of wounds to her upper body, police said.

Williams was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, and violation of probation from a prior criminal offense, police said.
