Michelle Perfanov and Ronald Keith Davis relationship
The Initial Incident
On August 21, he was filmed by a colleague arresting her after chasing her down.
He sat on her, lay on her and grabbed her by the legs throughout.
Perfanov was taken to the hospital and was held for multiple days before being released.
Doctors found she was not mentally unstable despite her the cop’s claims, and that she had only ever threatened suicide to him to get attention.
Now, it’s Davis who is facing charges including false imprisonment, strangulation, recklessly endangering another person and assault.
In text messages he told her: ‘You’re done. F**k around and find out. Get out of my house now.’
She had told him she was going to drive ‘off a cliff’, but later told police she was not suicidal, and only said it to ‘illicit a reaction’.
Davis was off-duty at the time of the arrest.
He had first gone to the station to obtain the involuntary commitment petition, then told his colleagues that he would take matters into his own hands after they were unable to find Perfanov.
‘I’ll take care of it myself,’ he said, before going off to find her.
Assisted by a ‘civilian companion,’ he then tracked her to the Pennsylvania State Game Lands in Weiser State Forest and attempted to carry her to his car before she began to fight back.
