Century Man Charged With Aggravated Assault With A Deadly Weapon

September 25, 2018

A Century man was arrested for allegedly pulled a gun on a man and threatening to kill the man’s friend.

Aaron Lee Sutton, 29, was arrested Saturday in connection with the incident on September 6 on Crary Road . He was charged with felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and misdemeanor battery.

The victim told deputies that he was walking home when Sutton stopped and offered him a ride to the home he shares with a friend. When they arrived, Sutton reached into his vehicle center console and retrieved a pistol, according to an Escambia County Sheriff’s Office arrest report, before running toward the door yelling that he was going to kill the victim’s friend.

Sutton allegedly grabbed the man by the throat and pointed the gun at his face before driving away “yelling and screaming” that he was going to kill his friend inside the home, the report states.

The friend told deputies that he saw Sutton beating on the door of the home with a firearm and observed him grab the other victim, but he said he did not see Sutton point the firearm at the victim, according to the ECSO.

The victim did not report the alleged incident for two days.

Sutton was released from jail on a $6,000 bond.

    It took 2 days to report this incident. Sounds like a concocted story to me and some bitterness between the parties. Sleeping, and you say it happened just like the report says. Knows all the details and was sleeping. Wow, I need to learn how to sleep like that. Yeah, if I was awakened by such commotion, 911 or the Sheriff’s office would be called. Ask questions later. The Judicial System will iron out all the wrinkles in this situation.

    @ No…If it happened as the report states, then why wasn’t it reported at the time it happened. I know if someone threatens my life with a gun, I’m calling 911 immediately. Makes no sense whatsoever. “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.” Gal 6:7 The truth will come out.

    Aaron is no longer a felon and has been doing right and working and spending time with his family. The night the “victims” claimed this happen, Aaron had taken his sleeping medicine and went to bed. They said it happened between 1:30-2:30 in the morning. Aaron left for work at 7 the next morning and put in a full days work. Plus, his pregnant wife who was up and down all night never saw him leave the bed. I’m still not sure how someone can get charged by having 2 friends come up with a story. So, before you start judging others, please know the whole story.

    Don’t judge or try to guess about a situation you have never been in.

    Every person lives their life differently and they face many kinds of bumpy paths. There’s a reason or excuse for every event.

    By the way, I don’t know any of these people. Possibly they could change their ways to live a better life instead of a bitter life.

    @old puppy
    He might not be a convicted felon. I’ve seen several cases where there are firearms(most cases are felonies of course) and felony drugs go to court and the individual be charged with felonies but unless the judges adjudicates them guilty the felony status won’t be applied to them. They usually plea and take a lesser charge from the state attorney which results in a misdemeanor. So the felon status wouldn’t apply to them. Now that might not be the case here but we don’t everything based off this little bit of information.

    If you were not there, you don’t know the whole story. People love to judge when they don’t even know who they are judging. These men could have threatened his children or his wife. We don’t know the details. Heck we don’t even know if he was even there or even committed these crimes. The alleged victim didn’t report this until two days after it supposedly happened. (sounds fishy to me) He was really afraid for his life wasn’t he???? I don’t think so. God don’t like ugly…..

    @deputy… still doesn’t explain why there wasn’t a charge of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Pretty sure that’s the LEO’s job.

    @really and @oldpuppy.
    This individual getting out on bond has nothing to do with his family or whomever he is related to being in law enforcement. He is out on bond because his particular charge granted him that. Bonds are set for different amounts for different crimes. Felonies usually carry a higher bond. Even a murderer can have a bond. Law enforcement based his bond of what we were allowed to per the standard given to us by the courts. Now why he is out running around is another story. That’s not law enforcements fault. That’s your state attorneys and judges who make that decision. LE did their job. Bad guy went to jail. What happens to them afterwards is not up to us. It’s up to the state attorneys and judges. Maybe some should look into voting for judges and take it more serious.

    @Really…. could be his dad was a “good old boy” aka cop

  11. Curious on September 25th, 2018 9:07 am

    I wonder what exactly a “good, reasonable cause” for this would be?

  12. Really on September 25th, 2018 8:41 am

    How does a felon with repeated gun offences keep getting out on bond?

  13. Old puppy on September 25th, 2018 8:31 am

    Wonder why he wasn’t charged with a weapon by a convicted felon? Just last year he went through this whole thing with another “friend” that lives on his road. Yet, they just keep letting this “son of an ex officer” do whatever he wants? Wonder why he keeps getting off Scott free

    I don’t know any of these people, but there is more to the reason for this assault that we don’t know about.

    There has to be a whole more to the story here. That don’t seem like Aaron at all, not unprovoked without a good, reasonable cause anyway. This could have happened but I don’t believe that other actions from a different party didn’t take place first, and that the party that took place in those actions didn’t deserve the punishment or at least a punishment also.
