ECSO: Century Man Goes On Rampage With Baseball Bat In A House With Seven Kids

January 9, 2020

A Century man allegedly went on a rampage, threatening to use a baseball bat to kill everyone in a house occupied by seven children while assaulting an adult female.

Brian O’Neil Madison, 32, was booked into the Escambia County Jail on charges of felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and battery.

Madison had lived with the female victim for 11 months, according to arrest report, and walked into the bedroom screaming about the location of his possessions. He grabbed the victim, snatched her out of the house causing her to fall on the steps and continued screaming at her incoherently. Someone in the house gathered the children and locked them in a bedroom.

Madison reentered the house armed with a baseball bat as the victim tried to hide in a bathroom. He struck the door with the bat, grabbed her by the throat and began to threaten to hit her with the bad. Instead, he smashed the bathroom sink, the report states.

Responding deputies found several broken tables, a smashed bathroom sink and overturned bed in the house.

The report notes none of the children observed any of they violence but could hear yelling and screaming as MadisonĀ  broke items in the house.

Madison was released from the Escambia County Jail on a $7,500 bond.

    @ Mike Timmons.

    According to the jail look-up for the county, he was not charged with Domestic Violence and was given bond by the arresting officer for two charges.

    Why are both bonds so low? Domestic Violence is a deadly crime in too many cases. No wonder, if the bonds are this low….:(

    Oversight: It appears this happened om the 2nd of January so Madison would have seen a judge and goven a bond. This was done by the judge.

    Dave: This guy had two charges and the female had one charge. Also, this guys bond was set by a judge. If you have ever sat through a court or first appearance/bond hearing, some judges take a comprehensive look at the entire situation, ie, did children witness this incident, how many victims, severity of victims injuries, ect.

    “…lived together for 11 months” and “…He grabbed the victim, snatched her out of the house causing her to fall on the steps…”

    Sounds like he should have been charged with domestic violence given a no bond.

    OK why is his bond over twice as much as the woman who actually cut someone with a hatchet and continued to threaten other people?
