Brooksville, Florida (SafeCITY) - Timothy Brooks, a 49-year-old Florida man was jailed after he allegedly used a chain saw to break into a motel room where his estranged wife and another man were in the midst of a date.

According to the Hernando County Sheriff's Office, Brooks' wife was on a "date" with another man at a Best Western motel when Timothy Brooks crashed their party with a chain saw.

Investigators say deputies were dispatched after the motel clerk informed them a man had arrived with a chain saw looking for his wife. The clerk reportedly declined Brooks' inquiries about which room his wife was staying in.

Shortly afterward, the clerk heard loud banging noises coming from outside. When he ran out to the parking lot to see what the noise was, he found the rear passenger window if his car shattered.

Brooks was also seen by witnesses breaking the window out of another vehicle using his fist. As witnesses surveyed the damage, Brooks located the room his wife was staying in, broke the motel room window with a chain saw and forced his way inside.

Police say Brooks confronted his wife, Teresa Brooks, before turning his attention to her date, Eyad Alaghawani.

Brooks reportedly grabbed Alaghawani and repeatedly punched him in the head. He then fled the scene when Alaghawani managed to grab a phone and call police. It was later discovered that Brooks had also smashed out a window in Alaghawani's car.

Alaghawani told police that he had only known Teresa Brooks for a few days and never met her husband before. Teresa Brooks stated that she was on a date with Alaghwani when the two decided to go to a motel. She stated that she did not know how Brooks found her.

Brooks was booked into the Hernando County Jail on charges of battery, burglary and criminal mischief.
