Cantonment Man Charged With Hitting Woman With Bar Stool, Punching Her

August 3, 2022

A Cantonment man was charged after allegedly hitting a woman in the head with a bar stool and punching her.

Dimitiri DyShawn Bryant, 43, was charged with felony aggravated battery using a deadly weapon, and misdemeanor battery.

The victim told the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office that she was working in a food trailer on Highway 29 when she heard a door open. When she turned around, Bryant threw a wooden bar stool, hitting her in the head before punching her in the face and ripping hair from her head, according to an arrest report.

A deputy noted that had injuries consistent with her allegations, and hair was on the floor of the food trailer. Bryant is the son of the food trailer owner and had dated the victim in the past, the report notes.

In an unrelated incident involving a second victim, Bryant was  charged with battery after he allegedly grabbed a woman and held her down against her will at a residence on Moreno Court. He also punched her in the face, and bit her on the chest and arm, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

Bryant was released on a $2,000 bond.

    Statistics have shown that young boys who see their mothers beaten at home are 10 times more likely to grow up and repeat the cycle with female significant others. Obviously, not knowing his psycho-social upbringing, it would be presumptuous to say that it’s the cause of his violent lack of control with women. Nonetheless, I doubt this fellow will change his impulsive behavior (woman beating) without mandated intervention. In the interim, if I was one of his female acquaintances, I’d run the other way-quickly!

    Florida’s Stand Your Ground law sometimes seem underutilized.

    Sad! He’s a woman beater. Why was his bond only 20,00?

    He seems to think he’s indestructible and pretty cocky by the looks of his mugshot. But what he really is, is an abusive coward. He’ll meet someone worse than he thinks he is which will be well deserved.

    I guess he’ll have to kill someone before they take his assaults seriously. At the rate he’s going it’s going to happen.

    Wish the Northescambia reporters could find out more info on this guy including the judges’ name who set this bond?

    I just do not understand how this bond system works. Second assault one of which is aggravated assault. I just don’t get it.

    That bond is a joke. And he’s a coward.

    $2,000 Bond and 5 previous arrests… WTH.

    Pulling hair, grabbing and biting is what kids do.

    Hopefully someday this woman beater will meet his match.
