Century Man Charged With DUI, Threatening To Kill Three Deputies

April 19, 2012

A Century man was arrested for DUI and allegedly threatening the lives of three Escambia County deputies.

Jeremy Scott Young, age 34 of Old Flomaton Road, was charged with DUI and three counts of corruption by threat of public servants and ticketed for an open container in a motor vehicle and failure to drive within a single lane following a traffic stop at North Century Boulevard and Highway 4 East.

Young was stopped by an Escambia County Sheriff’s deputy after he was observed driving erratically on North Century Boulevard. The deputy reported smelling the odor of alcohol from Young’s breath and vehicle. The deputy also noted an open light beer container in an Auburn hugger on the dash of the truck. He refused multiple requests to submit to a  field sobriety test.

Just before being taken to jail, Young reported told two deputies that he would “see them tomorrow night and that they would die”, according to an arrest report, adding that his threat was not a joke. He then obtained the unit numbers for both deputies “and continually began stating their numbers over and over trying to remember” them.

Young then told the deputy transporting him to jail that he would kill him if he was “molested” while in jail.

Young was later released from the Escambia County Jail on a $4,000 bond.

    DUI should be zero tolerance. However threatening to kill people is considered free speech according to the sheriff’s department . That charge should be dropped.

Jeremy i was sure hoping you have grown up by now but reading this report that does not seem to be the case…… I know you’ve had a rough life because i was really close to you most of the time when you was dealing with them problems. But you are old enough now you need to start caring more for those people around you that has tried to help you in the past and still to this day, ” I’m sure she bailed you out of Jail”.

    Well, isn’t he just a barrel of laughs. Seriously, he’s lucky that he didn’t run head on with a family of children. There’s alot of drinking & driving in this area, but most of them make it home in one piece. What’s the old saying? (God protects drunks & fools)…& maybe just some foolish drunks.
