Cantonment Man Charged In Incident Involving Two Guns And A Window Blind

November 16, 2020

A Cantonment man was jailed after an incident involving two guns and a window blind.

Exzavier Jamal Pritchett, 24, was charged with armed burglary of an occupied dwelling, two counts of aggravated assault with a firearm and criminal mischief.

Pritchett allegedly got into an argument with a woman at an apartment on Lake Drive in Cantonment. He approached the apartment and stuck a handgun through the window, according to an arrest report. His actions resulted in $15 in damage to the window blind.

A male resident was later threatened by Pritchett with two pistols outside the apartment, he told deputies.

Escambia County Sheriff’s Office deputies and a K-9 were unable to locate the weapons. Pritchett told deputies he had been smoking spice with the male resident when they became involved in an argument, but he said he never had a gun.

Pritchett remained in the Escambia County Jail Monday with bond set at $55,000.

    good thing jamal did not stick a gun through my window, or he would need stiches & reconstructive surgery from the 100 lb dog eating his wrist off, and the 80 lb dog’s brother chewing on his rump…

    and very possibly a long pine box also. dimensions: 6′x2′x1′

    The bond is high because of the charges NOT THE BLIND. Burglary $50,000. Agg. Asslt $5000. C/M (for the blind) Bond is $500.

    To the earlier post. You do realize breaking into someones home carries a VERY steep penalty? as in the burglar may not make it to see the next day.
    So judges dont play around with small bonds on that to remind people that breaking into someones castle might be meet with more than they bargained for. And being armed in the process reallllllllllyyyyyyy is a bad idea..

    Wow!!! A $55k bind for this but much greater crimes get a ridiculously low bond. Try harder and get it right Escambia County!!

    I never knew window blinds would carry such a high bond.

    Last week a man shot into a crowd of people after he had been accused of stabbing one of the people in the crowd, $29,000 bond.

    This article reports that a man damaged window blinds when he stuck a gun through a window. then threatened another later. never fired a shot or stabbed anyone. $55,000 bond

    So, I am assuming it must have been the window blinds that drew the extra bond.

    In the words of David Huie Green, Rasheed for the protection of window blinds.
