A Pensacola man is cited for hitting school bus in a Highway 29 construction zone.  FHP says 71-year old William Brewer was driving north on Highway 29 in the left lane while a school bus driven by Cathleen Schlobohm of Molino was in the right lane. Both stopped at a red light at the intersection of  9 1/2 Mile Road, where a lane shift is in place. FHP says the bus properly negotiated the lane shift, but Brewer did not, and his car hit the left side of the school bus. Brewer, Schlobohm, and an adult passenger on the bus, Betty Cloy of Cantonment, were not injured. There were no children on the bus at the time.


Quick arrests of two suspects in a bank robbery on Nine Mile Road.  47-year old Christopher Summers and 47-year old Angela McKinney were taken into custody after a short vehicle and foot pursuit that ended on Olive Road. It took the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office just eight minutes from the time of the robbery to make the arrests.
Summers and McKinney are both charged with robbery and booked into the Escambia County Jail on $100,000 bond each for the robbery at the Wells Fargo Bank at Nine Mile Road at Chemstrand Road. The money from the robbery was recovered and there were no injuries.  Summers is currently on federal probation for a prior bank robbery.


A Pensacola woman is arrested after allegedly forcing her husband to sign divorce papers at gunpoint.  45-year old Millanie Sherbrook was arrested Friday and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. She was booked into the Escambia County Jail without bond. The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office says a man called them Friday morning and reported he had locked himself in a bathroom to escape from his armed wife and she was still trying to open the bathroom door.  The man says he was in fear for his life because his wife was “a good shooter” and he was not sure if she was going to try to kill him. Sherbrook denied brandishing a gun or forcing her husband to sign any papers.
