It all started when Hernando County Deputies were called to Nicholson’s Spring Hill residence around 6:00 p.m. on February 20, 2018 for a domestic disturbance. Upon arrival, deputies met with the female victim, Valerie Surette, who told them she had been involved in a heated verbal altercation with her husband, Kendel Surette, and he threw a screwdriver at her, hitting her in the face. Deputies noted that both of the Surette’s had red, glassy eyes and slurred speech, indicating they were under the influence of an unknown substance. Kendel was placed under arrest for Domestic Battery. During the domestic disturbance investigation, information was obtained regarding allegations of additional criminal activity occurring within the residence and/or involving persons living in the residence and the case was turned over to Hernando County Vice and Narcotics Unit.
The Vice and Narcotics Unit, working in conjunction with Special Agents from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) conducted an investigation and while no details have been released Nicholas “Nick” W. Nicholson was placed under arrest today and charged with
