ECSO: Man Beat Woman With Chair For 30 Minutes, Punched Deputy In The Face

April 30, 2021

An Escambia County man beat a woman with a chair for half an hour and punched a responding deputy in the face, according to the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office.

Cornelious Williams, 47, is charged with battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest with violence and aggravated battery in a domestic violence situation.

About 6:40 Thursday morning, ECSO deputies responded to a man down call in the 700-block of Yonge Street. Once on scene, deputies found a female victim severely beaten and in the middle of the road. The domestic violence occurred inside a nearby home, where the victim was beaten with a chair for 30 minutes, deputies said.

The woman was rushed to a local hospital for treatment.

Deputies found Williams inside the home.

“Williams punched a deputy in the face while resisting arrest; however, he was taken into custody,” the sheriff’s office said in a statement.

Williams was booked into the Escambia County Jail with no bond.

    “We must get a lot tougher on criminals or we will be a third world country”

    How do you figure?

    Third world countries are extremely tough on criminals, yet remain third world countries.

    Well Now!! We want to do away with law enforcement? It seems there is a certain mentally among some people, you can beat a woman or do whatever you want without any repercussions. Real “Men” Don’t beat women!!
