Man Charged With Nearly Biting Off His Cousin’s Nose At Century Gas Station

August 3, 2019

A Pensacola man has is facing multiple charges after allegedly nearly biting his cousin’s nose off  at a Century gas station.

Anthony Darnell Powell, 33, was charged with aggravated battery causing bodily harm, carjacking and petit theft.

Deputies arrived at the Marathon gas station on North Century Boulevard at East Highway 4 to find a bloody man with his nose barely hanging on by a piece of skin, according to an Escambia County Sheriff’s Office report.

The victim told deputies that he had agreed to drive his cousin Powell to Castleberry, Alabama for $20 in gas money. They stopped in Century for gas, and the victim asked for the cash.

Powell yelled at his cousin and accused him of trying to kill him. The men fought for the car, with Powell biting the victim’s hand and almost biting his nose off. The victim back off, and Powell sped away with the car and his cousin’s cellphone, all according to an arrest report.

Powell remained in the Escambia County Jail Saturday morning with bond set at $101,000.

    Clearly nothing is funny! Some of you live for the next story to be printed just so you can joke. This ride was out of the goodness of the victims heart. I find it very pathetic that some of you can find this a joking matter. An innocent person could have lost their life. I just wish that you all would consider the victim and their family before trying to make a joke out of these stories that are printed. Treat others how you would want to be treated. Scratch that, treat others how you would want your mother or your child treated.

    This is just beyond strange. Like we hear, “Only in Florida”.
    Wondering if some sort of drugs or alcohol were involved?
    Bet the next family reunion may have a bit of tension.

    I guess he didn’t know they sell Snickers inside the gas station.
