Panama City, FL – Former PCPD officer convicted for battery

Date:

Panama City, FL –

PANAMA CITY, Florida (WMBB) – Former Panama City Police Officer Eric Conley was convicted of a battery offense charge on Wednesday evening.

On November 12, 2020, Conley punched victim Calvin Pittman multiple times in the chest as he tried to calm Pittman down. Pittman was handcuffed and could not resist his arrest.

Pittman did not attend the trial. On November 12, 2020, police were called because a frenzied Pittman believed someone was trying to kill him.

Officers were attempting to transport Pittman to Bay Medical Center, however, Pittman was uncooperative.

“Screaming wasn’t working, screaming wasn’t working,” Conley said. “It wasn’t working to try to lift him up so I used my palm, about three or four inches from his chest, saying, ‘Hey’ get in my car, stop screaming. And that was the extent of my strike.

After repeatedly punching Pittman, another police officer pulled Conley away from Pittman. Conley was then questioned by a Panama City police lieutenant and read his Miranda rights. He was then arrested, fired and now sentenced.

Conley’s sentencing will be handed down on December 9. Then it will be decided if he will serve a prison sentence or if he will be put on probation.
