PENSACOLA, Fla. – FDLE agents arrested Sheekina Williams, 36, of Pensacola for providing false information to law enforcement and perjury during an officer use of force investigation.
“In public integrity investigations such as this, FDLE’s role is to determine the facts so prosecutors can make appropriate charging decisions,” said FDLE Pensacola Special Agent in Charge Jack Massey. “For this to happen, it is imperative for people to provide truthful information.”
In an interview with FDLE agents, Williams claimed to witness a November officer involved shooting where the suspect was shot in the arm. FDLE was investigating the case at the request of Escambia County Sheriff’s Office after the suspect was shot while trying to run over deputies with his vehicle. Those deputies were recently cleared by the state attorney’s office of criminal wrongdoing.
Williams told officers she was standing on a front porch and saw the shooting. However video obtained from the scene shows Williams was not where she claimed to be. Agents believe Williams did not witness the incident. She is the mother of the suspect.
Williams was arrested earlier today and booked into the Escambia County Jail. The Office of the State Attorney, 1st Judicial Circuit will prosecute.
