Deputy Chief Hutchinson: Battery on a pregnant woman is sickening
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Titusville Police say they have arrested 20-year-old Amari N. Hair, once again, at the Timber Trace Apartments on Sisson Road for: Aggravated Battery on a Pregnant Woman; Grand Theft; Possession of Cocaine; Possession of Ecstasy; Possession of Marijuana; and 3 counts Possession of Controlled Substance with Intent to Sell (suspected Heroin and Oxycodone pills).
Amari Hair is currently out on bond for similar drug charges after he was arrested in an incident that was captured on cell phone video which showed him being struck by a Detective as he refused to comply with verbal commands.
Authorities say an Internal Investigation later cleared the Detective after dash-cam video showed Hair, who is known to be in the presence of handguns, resisted a pat down search and reached down the front of his pants.
A Detective used proper force because he feared Hair was reaching for a weapon.
“Aggravated Battery on a pregnant woman is sickening,” said Deputy Chief Todd Hutchinson.
“Our community should be relieved that this suspect is off our streets, especially considering his history of violence and drugs” added Hutchinson. Titusville Police will be requesting that Hair’s bond be revoked. Hair was in possession of Fentanyl in his last arrest, a drug that is blamed for 12 deaths in the Titusville area alone last year.”
“Fortunately, we are seeing an increase in tips from the community on these violent drug offenders because citizens have had it with drug dealing and the violence that comes with it,” added Hutchinson.
It is unknown at this time if there is an injury to the unborn child. Hair will be booked into Brevard County Jail.
