ECSO: Century Man Threw Brick Or Rock Through Woman’s Window

May 25, 2023

A Century man is facing a felony charge after allegedly throwing a brick or rock through a woman’s window.

Brooks Griggs III, 53 , was charged with felony launching a missile into a dwelling and misdemeanor criminal mischief between $200 and $1,000.

Griggs allegedly threw a brick or rock through a window on Pond Street. A resident told deputies that she observed Griggs running away, and she said everyone in the neighborhood had been “having issues” with him destroying their property, according to the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office.

Griggs later arrived back at his home in a vehicle, sticking his head out of a passenger window and asking deputies if they were looking for him, according to an arrest report. He was then detained.

Brooks remained in the Escambia County Jail Thursday with bond set at $15,500.

    would someone be arrested for shooting a criminal
    coming on to your property and throwing an object through your window and possibly injuring someone?

    “I am seriously steamed that the guy in this article is charged at the same level as the thug in my case. This county’s courts are seriously messed up.”

    Possibly but this is not proof of any problem with the courts. The legislature makes the laws and sets the level of the crime. For that matter, had there been a small child behind the window when the brick went through and it had been yours, you might see it differently.
    Stealing your car was bad and deserves punishment.
    Risking killing people is also bad.

    @ dubz:
    Many minor things are felonies, and so are major things. But by grouping them together like this, many criminals are released when they should not be. My car was stolen – in perfect, pristine, irreplaceable classic car condition, parted out and sold as scrap to a local recycler for $125. This convicted, inveterate criminal who did this had many prior convictions, and was on probation. Yet he was released with an order to pay restitution. I received two payments. I pushed for VOP, he was arrested, and released again. I pushed again, he was arrested and released again. The court put a lien on all his assets and any future assets and closed the case. I’ll never see another dime. And this guy walks free and will do it yet again with no consequences.
    I am seriously steamed that the guy in this article is charged at the same level as the thug in my case. This county’s courts are seriously messed up.

    “Breaking a window is a felony?”

    Nope, LAUNCHING A MISSILE (yes, a brick or rock is a missile when thrown) into a dwelling is a felony.
    Breaking a window is misdemeanor criminal mischief.

    Breaking a window is a felony? Everything seems to be a felony these days.

    He must enjoy making a nuisance of himself. Give him some time in the cooler to re-think himself.
