Molino Man Charged With Striking Deputy In Face

December 31, 2016

A Molino man is facing multiple charges after allegedly fleeing from deputies and striking one of them in the face.

Andre Lamar Floyd, 59, charged with felony battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting an officer with violence, resisting arrest without violence,  driving without a license and cited for no seat belt.

Two Escambia County deputies attempted a traffic stop at the intersection of Lincoln and Lewis streets in Cantonment. The driver, later identified as Floyd, pulled into a yard and Ellington and Washington streets, exited the driver’s seat and fled on foot despite verbal commands to stop.

A deputy was able to catch Floyd and directed him to the ground in a gravel lot at Muscogee Road and Stinnis Street. Floyd was able to get back up and flee again, before being caught again by the deputy. Floyd then shoved the deputy in the face with his hands, an arrest report states. A second deputy then tased Floyd, who was then detained.

Floyd was booked into the Escambia County Jail with bond set at $16,000.

    They should put cameras on the tasers. That would be worth watching!

    I like the way you think!

    The war on Leo’s has got to stop. The laws should be changed to include killing or assaulting Leo’s or first responders in general should be a hate crime. Those that stalk and kill Leo’s are hunting a specific victim because of what they do for a living.

    According to the Officer Down Memorial Page there have been 139 L.E deaths this year and gunfire deaths are up 56%. Totally unacceptable figures!

    That must be an old mugshot.. I would expect to see some damage to his face after hitting an ECSO deputy.

    See ya Andre, enjoy the next 10 years in prison and I hope you enjoyed Christmas since you wont see many for some time. We will send you some soap on a rope and a drivers educational book of rules of the road. On the positive side, you can collect social security when you’re released since you will be old enough. Unfortunately, collecting welfare doesn’t contribute to your SS check so you will most likely steal again so you can survive. One must think that maybe if you would have used your free education so many years ago, you could have been a productive member of society.

    He’s been breaking the law his entire life. He needs to have a reserve room in State Prison. Some people never get too old or wise enough to give it up.

    Career criminal dating back to 1991 with numerous Felony, misdemeanor and traffic related arrests.

    Multiple cases this year from Driving without a license and/or insurance.

    Its time to send this guy down the road for a few years. As long he is out of jail, he is a danger to all law-abiding drivers.
