Cantonment Man Charged With Allegedly Choking His Girlfriend

May 24, 2023

A Cantonment man is facing charges after allegedly choking his girlfriend on two different occasions.

Brandon Charles Manley, 23, was charged with two felony counts of domestic battery by strangulation and two counts of felony battery with a prior conviction.

Manley allegedly choked his girlfriend on May 1 and May 22. She told the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office that she began slamming car doors during a verbal altercation with Manley. He grabbed her, shoved her around the house, hit her, choked her and impeded her ability to breathe, according to an arrest report.

“This has been an ongoing occurrence where Manley has choked her. In the past she has been afraid to report Manley’s actions to law enforcement due to fear of retaliation,” the arrest report states.

According to the ECSO, Manley was previously convicted of battery in October 2019.

Manley remained in the Escambia County Jail due to a probation violation charge.

    Not that this did not happen. I will say I work in law enforcement. A lot of times these ladies are the ones that start crap knowing what is going to happen. Not that if’s right or wrong. Some of them even jump on guys now days and get mad when the guy fights back. And there are times nothing really happened and law enforcement have to go by the law. In FL if law is called out someone going to jail.

    This has been an ongoing occurrence where Manley has choked her – this loser needs
    an ongoing occurrence of supervised hard labor for a couple of years in a state prison

    Instead of letting him roam free on probation, let him roam free for an hour in the prison yard

    What’s up with these recent young men choking/abusing their girlfriends/acquaintances here lately? REAL MEN aren’t they! I just don’t understand the NEED/WANT TO by putting your hands on someone in this manner…and NOT RECEIVING some type of male family member finding out and handling things “accordingly”. No, I’m not advocating violence but GOODNESS! This mess needs to stop. I’ve never put my hands on a woman nor place a young lady in that much fear that they cannot seek help. I pray this young lady sees that he’s not only done this one time but twice in a span of 21 days. I’m in my 50s and wouldn’t do it because it’s wrong but my momma would woop me if she found out I had acted in such a way. I pray this young lady finally stays away from this fella and to him and others in that do these things to our women of today…it’s a lot easier to ask for forgiveness for walking away/taking a drive to cool off and diffuse the situation,from doing this than ever asking them (females) to forget you put your hands on them. MAYBE someone,where he’s currently living, will “show” him the error of his ways…js
