Scott Robert Kerster, 45, also known as “Scott Fudge,” was arrested Friday by Sumter County sheriff’s deputies on a Marion County warrant charging him with a felony count of battery of a person over the age of 65. He was transferred Saturday to the Marion County Jail.
Kerster had been arrested last month after taking an Uber to a Winn-Dixie in The Villages in violation of his community control sentence which requires him to remain at home. He lives with his mother at the Lake Sumter Reserve Senior Apartments at County Road 466 and Cherry Lake Road.
Kerster had been arrested after his mother had been taken by ambulance Feb. 9 from the apartment complex. A neighbor went to the hospital to check on the mother and was surprised that Kerster was not there with her. Instead of accompanying her to the hospital, Kerster called an Uber and went to the grocery store.
