Molino Woman Accused Of Shooting At Her Son’s Friend In Drug Money Dispute

September 13, 2018

A Molino woman is accused of firing a gun at her son’s high school friend in a dispute over drug money in an incident that played out on the roads of Bratt.

Crystal Lorraine Holliday, 36, was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, discharging a firearm from a vehicle and robbery with a firearm. She was released from the Escambia County Jail Wednesday morning on a $7,500 bond.

The victim told deputies that he was given $200 to go buy “weed” for  the dad of another student he knew from school. But instead of purchasing marijuana, the victim decided to keep the cash.

He received text messages from a number he did not recognize asking him to meet at a convenience store at the corner of North Highway 99 and Highway 4 in Bratt. When he arrived at the store, he saw the man get out of his car and start to approach him.  The victim became scared and drove away.

The student’s dad pulled up next to the victim’s car as they traveled on Breastworks Road. The student’s mother, later identified as Holliday, fired a shot at the victim, according to an Escambia County Sheriff’s Office report. The victim stopped his car and put his hands up as Holliday pointed the gun at him and demanded the $200, the report states.

The victim told investigators that he had already spend part of the $200, so Holliday took a compound bow valued at $900 and his $600 iPhone at gunpoint and told him he could get his phone back for $90. The victim drove to a residence on Pine Barren Road and called deputies.

The father told deputies that there was never a gun involved in the incident, and Holliday owns a .380 caliber weapon that she keeps in another vehicle, according to the report. The father also said the money was for a cell phone that the victim did not give his son, so they chased him, taking his phone and bow until the victim could pay back the money.

Holliday’s statements to deputies were redacted from the arrest report.

The bow and iPhone were returned to the victim by the ECSO.

    So, shoot at someone, rob them after a drug deal gone wrong and you get a $7500 bond. Sell deer meat in and out of season and your bond is $28,000? While I doubt either is a flight risk, it just doesn’t make any sense to me.

    Nikki, bond is not meant as punishment. It is meant to ensure the person shows up for court….DUH

    Doc Holiday was good with a gun, maybe she’s a descendant, just kidding. Seriously it’s sad when parents quit being parents and get involved in things like this.
