Selena Jo Chambers Wiki – Selena Jo Chambers Bio

Selena Jo Chambers, a resident of Tallahassee, was charged with battery after reportedly throwing a drink at US Representative Matt Gaetz during the South Walton Beaches Wine and Food Festival. The Walton County Sheriff claimed Gaetz insisted on filing charges.

Gaetz said that his actions were legitimate, claiming that Chambers, 41, “cross[ed] the Rubicon beyond just words to throwing stuff,” as per the Guardian. Gaetz is a renowned supporter of Donald Trump. He recently took the lead in a right-wing uprising that required California Republican Kevin McCarthy to secure 15 votes before being confirmed as speaker of the US House. In response to Chambers’ alleged attack, Gatez issued a press statement that read, “I will never allow the safety of north-west Floridians to be compromised.”

Arrested For Allegedly Throwing Drink

Gaetz mentioned that he had been “enjoying catching up with new friends and old, and folks recognized me, and we were taking pictures and having polite conversations. As I was chatting with one gentleman, a lady threw a drink on the both of us,” on his podcast on Tuesday, May 2. Gaetz defended the choice to file charges by stating, “If we start allowing stuff to be thrown or hurled, if we allow people to be harmed, there is a severe risk of escalation and accident. And we don’t want to see anyone in harm’s way, whether it’s family members, supporters, or even our detractors. We want them to be safe too.”

“But when they really cross the Rubicon beyond just words to throwing stuff and striking me and striking a gentleman I was speaking with, with a drink, then that has really caused harm to our community. And it’s something that we want to contain and extinguish and not see going forward,” Gaetz stated.

Chambers “told police she was walking and tripped and spilled her drink on Gaetz, though she recognized Gaetz before spilling her drink on him,” Pensacola News Journal reported. The sheriff claimed Chambers reportedly cursed Gaetz before throwing her drink, which struck the congressman and another individual. However, a female companion of Chambers said that she was the one who cursed.
