Mother Arrested For Lying To Investigators About Her Son's Shooting By Officer

Sheekina Williams was arrested after she lied to police about witnessing her son's officer-involved shooting.

Pensacola, FL – A mother has been arrested for perjury after she lied about having been a witness when her son was shot by police.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) said in a press release that 36-year-old Sheekina Williams had been charged with providing false information to law enforcement and perjury during an officer use-of-force investigation in connection with an incident that involved her son, the Pensacola News Journal reported.

“In public integrity investigations such as this, FDLE’s role is to determine the facts so prosecutors can make appropriate charging decisions,” FDLE Pensacola Special Agent in Charge Jack Massey said in a statement. “For this to happen, it is imperative for people to provide truthful information.”

Her son, Antonio Desmond Smith, was arrested on Nov. 10, 2018 after he tried to run over two Escambia County deputies, according to WKRG.

The deputies were trying to arrest Smith on an outstanding warrant at the time, and shot and wounded him when he attacked them with his vehicle.

His mother told deputies that she had been standing on her front porch when the incident occurred and was a witness to the shooting, WEAR reported.

However, FDLE investigators reviewed all the available surveillance video of the scene and determined that Williams had not actually seen her son’s altercation with the deputies.

She was arrested and booked into the Escambia County jail on Friday, and has since bonded out, WEAR reported.

The Florida State’s Attorney’s Office ruled the shooting was justified and the use-of-force was reasonable under Florida law on Jan. 23, the Pensacola News Journal reported.

The state’s attorney’s office said no charges would be filed against the deputy who shot Smith in the arm.

Smith was charged with aggravated battery upon a law enforcement officer, resisting an officer without violence, possession of a controlled substance, manufacturing or delivering a controlled substance (cannabis), possession of drug paraphernalia and manufacture, delivery, or possession with the intent to sell, according to the Pensacola News Journal.

These people for some reason have decided to rebel against authority at all costs. Why? Rebelling to this extent isn’t going to accomplish anything other than to get you killed, which of course indicates they are extremely ignorant unless they are sacrificing themselves hoping their family will win the law enforcement lottery. There have been a few crooked cops that were charged with a crime or big mistakes made where they lost their job. However, 95% or more of police action is upheld in court. Are they all criminals just playing the “I didn’t know” game? They appear to be unable to differentiate between lawful & unlawful police duties as well as their responsibilities as a citizen. I wonder if a partial educational program maybe on TV would help this situation? There are many different laws that vary by jurisdictions but many laws are very similar. So many basic laws are universal & could be explained on TV. I imagine at least some & possibly many would watch, learn & put into practice the skills they would learn. Paying for it could be accomplished through the states, counties or cities. If it did work to reduce confrontations the costs would be offset by reduced crime costs. Something must be done.

Now we need to further this good work and hold ALL mothers accountable who spread the "my baby dinndu nufin" so far as to outright lie to investigators. And while I hope that this story will serve a deterrent to this behavior, it's very doubtful. I think the only way to prevent these lies is to affect a person's ability to collect in civil law suits.

I’m trying to say this without sounding racist, and I am far from racist, but why is it always the black mothers talking shit and lying? Why is it always they didn’t do anything? The police don’t just chase you and arrest you for no damn reason. These people should stop playing the victim and own up to their wrong doings. And you mother who feel you have to lie, you should own up also and accept the fact that you are a shitty parent. Don’t blame it on “baby daddy” not being around, that’s your problem, just as it is to raise the child as best as you can but obviously failed at that.

Hi HB, ... some perspective- No, its not always the black mothers who do this. It is not predominantly racial in nature .....Think more from the perspective of conditions and taught behavior traits. The liar may well likely be uneducated, emotionally immature, unwilling to accept personal responsibility ( which again points to lack of maturity), and one who was not provided much of any positive instruction while young and growing. There may have been little to no instruction to say and do the right thing or little positive guidance or correction as it pertained to morals, values, beliefs,and attitudes. They may choose to lie due to being scared or panicking and not knowing that lying will just dig them into a worse situation. At times they may think they are smarter and can outwit someone. Denying the truth may have worked for them up to the very point they are caught lying . What is left in their day to day behavior traits is "spoiled milk". What they may have "learned" from whoever was the parent figure while growing or what was learned on the street. The liar may have also found successes with similar past behaviors so with each episode it becomes more "acceptable", at least in their own eyes. These behaviors are likely passed down from generation to generation. The end result is what others then observe and have to deal with. It takes a mature ,educated person to admit they are wrong and to learn from past mistakes. It is far easier to try to lie and blame others..."easier "until they are caught doing so.

It's about time! Maybe if more charges brought by prosecutors against liars filing false police reports, they would cease, if not curtail.
