August 16, 2017

A Cantonment landlord was arrested for trying to run over one of his tenants and the keying the vehicle of another.

Roy Bracken, 62, was charged with felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and felony criminal mischief with property damage.

The first victim told deputies that Bracken, her landlord, came to her trailer and began yelling and cursing about a window air conditioner that she and her husband had borrowed the night before. He left the residence, but later in the day when the female was near her driveway, Bracken walked about and began yelling about the air conditioner again, an arrest report states.

After getting in his Cheverolet Volt, Bracken  began to spin his tires and yelled “run, (expletive), run” before accelerated rapidly in her direction, the victim told deputies.

In the second incident, Bracken allegedly “keyed” a 2004 Kia Sorrento belonging to another tenant. There were at least two witnesses to the incident, according to an Escambia County Sheriff’s Office report.. Damage was estimated at $3,000.

Bracken remain in the Escambia County Jail Tuesday morning with bond set at $10,000.

    Bless his heart, he must have wanted his own air-conditioner! This heat made him go insane. The couple need a good attorney so they an own their own home on the landlord’s dime.

    Evidently he doesn’t want folks to be cool and he doesn’t like KIA’s while letting the expletives fly…
