July 16, 2017

An Escambia County man has been arrested in connection with  death of  man last December outside a Pensacola bar.

Donny Ray Dearmon, 38, was charged with negligent manslaughter.

Pensacola Police Department Detectives Chris Grantham and Marcus Savage determined Dearmon caused the death of Lester MacDonald, 52, of the 1200 block of Scenic Highway, Pensacola, after he pushed him out the door of a local business late last year, and MacDonald’s head hit the pavement.

The incident occurred just after midnight December 4 at Sir Richards Bar, 2719 E. Cervantes Street, after the two men exchanged words inside the business.

MacDonald died later that day at his residence.

Dearmon remains in the Escambia County Jail with bond set at $250,000.

    The bar where this guy had been drinking should be gel liable. Of course the name of the game is money. As long as drunks keep buying drunks they keep selling. Tragic death for sure. South Palafox has built bar after bar. Downtown Pensacola is not family friendly. Really sad, but the mayor created the mess.
