McDavid Man Charged With Fighting With Deputies Attempting To Arrest Him

December 7, 2023

A McDavid man is facing additional charges after allegedly resisting arrest and fighting with Escambia County Sheriff’s Office deputies.

Deputies went to a residence on C.W. Carraway to arrest Haden Brock Howard, 29, on two outstanding warrants for failure to appear on charges of possession of a firearm by convicted felon and as a habitual traffic offender.

They located Howard and gave him several loud commands to surrender, but he refused, according to an arrest report. He continued to fight deputies, and he was forcibly placed on the ground where he refused to comply.

“Due to Howard’s resistance, I delivered several closed fist strikes to his face and delivered a knee strike to his rib area to gain compliance,” a deputy wrote in his report. After another deputy delivered several strikes, Howard complied and was detained.

Howard was transported to Baptist Hospital for evaluation. A deputy sustained a small cut to his finger that did not require medical attention.

In addition to the outstanding warrants, Howard was charged with resisting arrest with violence. He was booked into the Escambia County Jail without bond.

    Thank you to all the respondents giving eye witness reports. Were you all present for the mugshot?

    My comment made note of the fact that the deputies decided to beat the suspect into compliance instead of using the equipment issued to them. Going “hands on” puts both sides at risk of injury but I’m sure it’s more satisfying for the deputies.

    Man don’t wake him up snatching his head around no wander he got mad at the deputies he was probably just trying to get his nap out so rude could show a little courtesy dang

    @Pensacola Pete, this inmate is not unconscious in the photo, but is instead still refusing to comply by sitting up and looking at the camera as he’s being instructed to do. Mug shots aren’t optional, and inmates who don’t comply are held in position, hence the hand on top of his head.

    @Pensacola Pete…..that is not an unconscious man. That is STILL a man who is not complying for the photo. He’s a 3 year old in a 29 year old man’s body.

    @Pensacola Pete, he’s not unconscious there at all, he’s uncooperative which is a completely different thing. Had he complied he would have had a much nicer trip to his new home. Had he done life better he might have even slept in his own bed that night. He put himself there.

    Why not just comply

  13. Pensacola Pete on December 7th, 2023 7:56 am

    Why use your Taser when you can just beat the suspect unconscious for his mugshot?
