Century Man Charged Battery, Assault On His Kids After Funeral

July 5, 2024

A Century man has been arrested for an armed disturbance following a funeral.

Darryl Lamar Brown, 56, was charged with misdemeanor battery and felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Brown allegedly slapped his adult child in the face with a hunting knife and threatened to stab him at a funeral repast.

A female told the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office that she arrested at the funeral repast for her grandfather and Brown asked if she was not going to speak to him as she greeted the others present, according to an arrest report. She told deputies that he slapped her on the face with an open hand before she got up from the table and started yelling at him. Her brother wrapped his arms around Brown and tried to calm him down, but Brown slapped him in the face with the knife before pushing it into his stomach, the report continues.

The ECSO said Brown then told everyone to get off the property before he cut all of them. The siblings left the property and waited down the road for law enforcement, deputies said. Neither suffered visible injuries and declined EMS.

Brown remained in the Escambia County Jail Friday morning with bond set at $5,000.

    @Marie, This is what’s wrong with the older generations. You’re literally condoning an old dude assaulting people with a knife because he felt disrespected? Are you kidding me? Most of the Boomer generation’s parenting techniques were abusive. Imagine thinking that slapping people in the face or threatening them with a knife is appropriate because you think you deserve respect just for being old.

    I think that this should not have happened If the daughter didn’t want to speak that’s her prerogative he could have ignored her.now you done gotten yourself in trouble for something that really could have been prevented,after this incident he’ll be lucky if his kids ever speak to him again the relationship was already strained you he just added insult to injury.Good luck Mr.Brown I surely hope you are sitting in there thinking about what you’ve done and also what can you do to better your life and situation .Father time isn’t on your side any more Man !!!!
