Cantonment Man Charged With Armed Burglary, Aggravated Battery With A Deadly Weapon

September 17, 2021

A Cantonment man is facing charges after allegedly tasing a woman at a Pensacola Boulevard store.

Christopher James Morel, 35, was charged with felony armed burglary and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. He was released from jail on a $50,000 bond.

Morel was driving his truck and allegedly almost struck another vehicle in the parking lot of La Mexicana Supermarket. The driver of that second vehicle told deputies that she yelled at him.

Morel got of out his vehicle before diving into the victim’s passenger side window and tasing her arm, according to an arrest report.

Surveillance video showed most of the incident, the report states.

    This cowardly little woman abuser needs to do some real time in prison amongst other men so he can learn how it feels to be abused. Hope he goes down for a long time.

    looking at his long list of interactions with the Escambia County courts – mostly for traffic related offenses – I see this wasnt his first arrest involving the use of a “stun gun”.

    Christopher you might wanna be careful whose vehicle you dive thru a window with a taser in your hand next time…You do understand that people have the right to protect themselves I hope.

    How ironic this guy’s last name is the same as a type of mushroom. He needs to go hide under one for doing something so stupid. Then he appears quite content in that mugshot. Is it just a wee bit obvious he might need mental health care? Some people need to chill…say a prayer and be thankful they are living.

    The burglary charge will be dropped or dismissed, and the felony battery will be pleaded to misdemeanor. This is a clear reason why it’s important to carry. This guy is lucky he didn’t end up carried away in a bag.

    What a jerk, mental health treatment wouldn’t hurt this guy.
