Man arrested for fleeing, four days after release from prison


GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Liorrell Dyounn Williams, 21, was arrested yesterday and charged with resisting an officer without violence after allegedly trying to evade deputies who wanted to speak with him about an armed robbery. Williams was released from prison on March 29.

At about 11:15 a.m. yesterday, deputies attempted to make contact with two men standing in front of the Eastwood Meadows apartment complex (925 SE 43rd Street) because the men matched a description provided for two suspects in an armed robbery the previous day; the armed robbery suspects were allegedly armed with handguns. Williams was later identified as one of the two men standing in front of Eastwood Meadows.

When a deputy stopped a patrol vehicle near the two men and got out of the car, the two men allegedly fled on foot, and deputies chased them but did not apprehend them. About 40 minutes later, Williams was seen getting into a car that was leaving the complex; he reportedly leaned back in the seat in an apparent attempt to avoid being seen by deputies and was only spotted when he lifted his head to look out the window. Deputies conducted a traffic stop and arrested him.

Williams has been charged with resisting an officer without violence. He was arrested for the same charge in November 2021 and entered a plea of nolo contendere in exchange for 38 days in jail (with credit for 38 days time served) and fines and fees of $453.50, which he has not paid. He was arrested again in February 2022 and charged with possession of a weapon by an individual who was adjudicated guilty as a juvenile of an offense that would be a felony for an adult; he entered a plea of nolo contendere in exchange for one year and one week in prison, with credit for 362 days served. As a result, he served nine days in a Department of Corrections detention facility and was released on March 29; he is currently serving three years of probation in that case.

Williams has several juvenile convictions and one felony as an adult; Judge Susan Miller-Jones set bail at $5,000.

  • This judge is a f****** joke! what does she even want to be a judge for if she doesn’t want to uphold the law?

  • There’s probably not many people who have an alien hand palming their head. No wonder that description was easy to spot.

    Anticipating the follow-up investigation as to whether he was or was not involved in the armed robbery.

    Kids…be careful the company you keep.

  • There is an alien on his head. And Susan Miller-Jones should be voted out of office next election.

  • That hair is fake. They shave your head the day you go to the department of corrections. And you have regular mandatory haircuts.

  • If jails and prisons teach about wake-up times and duties, why doesn’t that stick so ex-cons can set alarm clocks and go to work later?

  • Glad he got that neck tattoo so he can be identified easy.—The armed robber was a “ Black guy with
    Proud hair that looks like someone took 6 large footling craps on his head and a tattoo on his neck of a big 7 that has a cross…”…I could pick him out of a line-up easy!

    • Obviously not the sharpest knife in the drawer…. throw in the stupid tats, criminal history and the fugly hair and you have a complete waste of protoplasm.

  • Wow!! This dudes really ‘stylin’ isn’t he? But He’s got nothin on Methuselah.

  • Don’t you receive a mandatory haircut when you are checked into state prison? Maybe I’m behind the times.
