Century Man Charged With Battery, Theft Of Utility Trailer

January 15, 2019

A Century man was arrested after being featured as one of the first members of the “Century Six” most wanted North Escambia area fugitives.

An arrest warrant for battery was issued for 28-year old William Hamilton after he allegedly became involved in an altercation with a female on Hilltop Road in Century on October 3, 2018. He struck the female in the mouth, according to an arrest report.

On December 26, a deputy spotted Hamilton in a vehicle in Century. Hamilton fled the vehicle and ran into wooded area behind his residence on Hilltop Road. A K-9 search was conducted, but he was not located. Deputies did, however, locate a utility trailer on the property that was reported stolen in November, leading to additional charges of grand theft and criminal mischief.

Hamilton was released from the Escambia County Jail on a $1,000 bond.

    Is this the same young man that was in the bad accident involving the big truck on 29 ? Same name and age?

    Is this the same guy in the other article about the crash with the pickup and the forestry service truck? The name and age fit.

    State system is a mess. County spends no telling how much money and resources to find and capture this guy then he gets a $1,000 bond which I understand costs him $100 to get out of jail. Seems somehow these criminals should have to repay the cost of apprehending them. Of course most are deadbeats living off the taxpayers anyway.

    Hope the trailer found is one of the several lately reported stolen, the church or the fella who does landscaping would surely like theirs returned.
