Century Man Charged With Attempting To Run Over His Brother

August 20, 2018

A Century man has been charged with attempting to run over his brother and resisting arrest.

Ricardo Galvan was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, criminal mischief with property damage, resisting arrest and driving with a suspend license third or subsequent offense.

Galvan allegedly turned onto Cumbie Road and drove his Jeep Liberty directly at his brother. The brother barely jumped out of the way, with Galvan running over his brother’s hand carved mahogany walking stick valued at $1,000, according to an arrest report.

According to the responding deputy, Galvan has been “known to be violent towards others and verbally abusive based upon my dealings with him in the past two years working this district.”

Deputies said the brothers have had over 300 incidents of violence where were not reported during the past 54 years, the report states.

As deputies conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle driven by Galvin, he left the vehicle in drive with the doors locked. A deputy was forced to draw his firearm and order Galvin at gunpoint to exit his Jeep. When he unlocked the doors, deputies “assisted” Galvan out of the driver’s seat and placed him under arrest without further incident, according an arrest report.

Galvan was also ticketed for knowingly driving with a suspended license.

Galvan remained in the Escambia County Jail Monday with bond set at $13,500.

    Its not the water or the gas. He was on his way back from listening to a City Council meeting. That’s enough to drive anyone crazy!

    Ricky’s lived in Century since the 80’s, Mike. If I’m not mistaken, his mother is or was a nurse and seems as if he may have worked for the City way back when. He’s always had a serious drug and alcohol problem and never seemed to be “all there” to me.

    I’m curious about how deputies can state that they’ve had over 300 unreported incidents of violence over the last 54 years. If they were unreported, how do the deputies know how many may or may not have happened? And he’s only about 57! Seems they must have started when he was awfully young.

    I hope the deputies helped him gently to the ground (insert sarcasm). Looks like he has a suicide jacket on. Commit the crime and then flake out. Outstanding!
