Man Charged With Aggravated Battery Of His Girlfriend In Century

July 26, 2021

A man is facing two felony charges after allegedly head-butting and biting his girlfriend during an argument at a Century apartment complex.

Melvin Shamar Pleasant, age 21 of Flomaton, was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and aggravated battery causing bodily harm.

Pleasant and his girlfriend of four months were “hanging out together” at her apartment on West Highway 4. The report states she said, “he accused her of changing who she is on him,” leading to an argument that turned violent. She told deputies that she hid a gun belonging to Pleasant because she was afraid he would use it to shoot her.

He allegedly head-butted her in the face and bit her twice during the argument. The Escambia County Sheriff’s office said her eye was stitched closed due to an injury, and she received treatment at Jay Hospital  for bite injuries to a finger and her wrist.

The victim later turned the gun over to the ECSO.

Pleasant remained in the Escambia County Jail Monday morning with set at $27,500.

    Prayers for this young lady and for her to open her eyes. I’m seeing way to many of these young punks physically abusing their girlfriends. What’s sad is the young ladies suffer from lack of self esteem and believe this is what they deserve….WAKE UP and remove these types from your life. You are better than what they are telling you and the way they are treating you. I hope this young lady and the others we see on her that are abused wakes up before they are abused to the point where they never wake up. These types will never change and by them hitting a girl shows they aren’t real men… let them step up to a real man and try that mess!!!

    ” head-butted her in the face and bit her twice.” Allegedly.
    Nothing Pleasant about that at all.

    Now you know who he IS! The ball is in your court, you either be completely done with him or you live this life. Your future is on you. If you want true love, turn to Jesus.
