A case has been dropped against a Cantonment man charged with attacking a wheelchair bound amputee.

Brian Christopher Holtman, 34, was charged with felony abuse of an elderly or disabled person in March 2019. According to court documents, the charge was dropped because the victim declined to prosecute.

According to an Escambia County Sheriff’s Office report, the victim said he was arguing with Holtman over financial issues when Holtman became upset and physically attacked him as they traveled along Plantation Road.  The victim refused medical treatment.
