Ronald Cummings was arrested around 1 am this morning for Burglary with Battery. The arrest has nothing to do with Haleigh Cummings’ disappearance. It appears to be just a domestic dispute with Misty’s parents. Why Ron was charged with burglary is not at all clear.

If you were wondering what exactly Ronald and Misty were up to of late, it appears that the Cummings will once again be in the news. This type of sleazy thing might be just what is needed to once again focus the attention of the national press on Haleigh Cummings.

Ronald Cummings was arrested and booked into the Putnam County Jail on a charge of burglary with battery. He has already appeared in court where bond was set at $12,504.

Adam Kirk of WOKV from Jacksonville Florida managed to cover in depth exactly what had happened. The course of events is rather convoluted with Misty being right in the middle of it.

The incident took place on Wednesday August 5th at about 11:30 pm at 216 4th Avenue Welaka, Florida. The arrest was made in the parking lot of the Welaka Kangaroo, a local convenience store. The assault was made upon Hank Croslin, Jr., Misty’s brother.

According to the Croslins, Misty had phoned her brother earlier that evening telling them that she wanted to leave Ronald immediately and go home with them because Ron was totally out of control. When the Croslin’s arrive, a free for all fight took place with Ronald, who they suggested might have been on something at the time.

The statement made by Misty characteristically contradicted what the Croslin’s had stated, and sided with her husband. According to the Cummings, Hank Croslin, Jr. is the one who started the fight. Misty had actually begged her brother not to come over, because it was too late in the day.

The public disturbance was witnessed by Ronald’s grandmother Annette Sykes who was woken up by all the noise. Both Misty and Annette literally got in the middle of the fight. Misty’s mother (Lisa Croslin) and father (Hank Croslin, Sr.) were also there.

Ronald Cummings refused to say much, but he did make charging affidavits against both Hank Croslin, Jr. and Sr. which were forwarded to the State Attorney’s Office for further review.

Since the fight took place on Annette Sykes’ front yard, it was not at all clear why Ronald Cummings was being charged with burglary. The press should have a field day with Putnam County Sheriff’s Office’s bizarre definition of burglary.

If this story wont bring the Cummings back to the attention of the national press, nothing will. This news story has plenty of tabloid appeal. There is even the issue of whether or not Ronald’s former attorneys will step forward to represent him in court. If nothing else Blog Talk Radio, Tj Hart, and BNN will finally have something new to talk about that is remotely related to Haleigh Cummings.
