On October 2, 2022, State Representative Randy Fine posted on his Facebook page a photo of a Palm Bay home with about 8 of his yard signs in the front yard. He captioned the photo with “FAVORITE HOUSE EVER:. Anybody want to guess who this family lives across the street from? (No names, until three days ago when they picked up the signs, I’d never met this family). Humbled they’d cover their front yard to support me!”
The resident, Kelsey Fletcher aka Kelsey Velasquez (maiden name) of the home identified herself in the comments of the post. Once she did, some of her neighbors commented, praising her and her family as “a great family and very good people.”
On June 9, 2022 Kelsey was arrested by Palm Bay Police and charged with battery of Randy Fine’s political opponent Anthony Yantz’s wife. The incident which was captured on video shows Mrs. Yantz in front of her home teaching her daughter to ride a bike. Kelsey can be seen yelling at her in the distance and Yantz is pointing for her to go away. Kelsey then races towards her and appears to hit Mrs. Yantz, then immediately turns and walks off. Kesley was convicted by the courts on August 31st, and ordered to pay $1019.50 and attend a mandatory Anger Management Course.
