In Near-Replica of Previous Arrest for Assault, Pariate Moore, 26, Is Tased in Palm Coast’s R-Section

Pariate Moore when he Palm Coast’s was in state prison, left, and after his arrest Wednesday in Flagler.

A deputy used a Taser to stop a man from running immediately after being questioned about an allegation of domestic violence Wednesday evening. The man had been arrested in almost identical fashion, after a Taser shot, eight years ago—an arrest that led to a four-year prison term.

Pariate Moore, a 26-year-old resident of Palm Coast, was Tased near 37 Robinson Drive, then continued to struggle with Flagler County sheriff’s deputies, according to his arrest report. Charged three times in the last eight years with resisting arrest, among man y other charges (some of them violent), Moore was charged Wednesday with domestic battery by strangulation, aggravated assault, battery and resisting arrest with violence.

The alleged incident began near the Flagler Beach Pier in mid-afternoon. The arrest report states that a 39-year-old woman “was near the Flagler Beach Pier where her fiancé, Pariate Moore, works.” (Moore does not work at the pier itself: Flagler Beach city officials said he is not on the city payroll. He may work at a nearby business.)

As the couple left the pier, Moore allegedly accused his fiancée of cheating on him then “began pushing and hitting her while in the car,” the report states. The woman claimed he threatened to kill her repeatedly, and when they reached Palm Coast’s R-Section, he “dragged her out of the car into the woods” and struck her several times, choking her and threatening to throw her body in the creek. The woman had visible swelling and bruises on both sides of her face and on her forehead when deputies examined her.

A passerby interrupted Moore. He told the passerby to leave. The couple returned to the car and headed to 37 Robinson Drive, where they’d been parking their car, with the owner’s permission, and sleeping in the car. Moore got out of the car when he saw someone he knew, at which point the woman took the wheel, drove off and called 911. A deputy met her in the P Section. Moore, meanwhile, called 911 to report his car stolen.

When a deputy spoke to him on Robinson Drive, he said he’d been in an argument with his fiancée, admitted to pushing her, but said she’d banged her head before taking off in his car. Moore, according to the report, ran when the deputy tried to handcuff him. Two deputies chased him, one of them landing a Taser dart on his left arm. Moore fell, but then struggled with deputies as they tried to handcuff him, and allegedly continued to do so afterward, “kicking or attempting to get up from the ground when given verbal commands not to.”

A Flagler County Fire Rescue unit attended to the wound on his left arm caused by the Taser probe “as well as for any additional injuries he may have suffered while resisting,” the report states. He was booked at the county jail just before 8 p.m., where he remains on no bond.

Aside from several bookings at the county jail since 2009, Moore served just over three years of a four-and-a-half-year sentence in state prison for robbery and obstructing an officer. That robbery had also taken place in the R Section.

The original arrest report alleged he had displayed a gun, and the original charges included two charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, as the victim had been struck. (Moore disputed the facts, saying it was a pot deal gone bad, with the dealer lying to police about it.) In a plea deal he would subsequently claim was forced on him, the aggravated assault charges were dropped. He was not initially sentenced to prison: then-judge Kim Hammond sentenced him to two years’ probation. But he soon violated his probation. He was re-sentenced to more probation. He violated probation again, and in March 2012, was sentenced to prison. By then Hammond had retired: The sentence was imposed by the notoriously unforgiving Judge Raul Zambrano. During the proceedings in that case, Moore’s public defender had successfully motioned to remove the designation of Moore as a “violent felony offender of special concern.”

As in Wednesday’s arrest, Moore, that day on Raemond Lane in 2010, resisted when told he’d be placed under arrest, and a deputy used a Taser on him. Moore continued to resist, according to his arrest report at the time. The deputy threatened to Tase him again, and Moore complied. He was in state prison from April 2012 to July 2015.

  3. Sw says:

    Wash, rinse,repeat. So when is he going away for good You HONOR. Or, is it wait til someone dies SMH

    What a fine young man. Repeat offender. What a surprise! Throw him in jail and forget about probation. He obviously thinks it’s a joke. Some people never learn.

  5. Jim says:

    Hey Woodchuck you took the words right out of my mouth…I have a home in the R section and I’m looking to dump it quick as the R section has become the ghetto/hood of PC. Its a shame but I’m counting down the days til I move out of this cesspool of washed up Yankees and thugs from the cities of NY, NJ, Conn, ect. St Augustine here I come.

  6. Outsider says:

    Fiancé? Surely you’re kidding!

  8. RL70 says:

    Why would she cheat on such a fine young man?

    After all, he did provide a driveway in which they could park their car to sleep in.

    Such a catch…

  9. New Yorker 13 says:

    We’re sad to see you go, not.. Bye , bye

  10. Richard Smith says:

    As others have stated, repeat offender. Time to put him behind bars and throw away the key. Very low percentage of rehabilitated people come out of prison that don’t return. Ever wonder why California prisons are so overcrowded? Three Strikes Law, that’s why. Then there are the liberals in that state that keep letting the felons out early because of the overcrowding only to end up killing someone later. They just don’t get it!

  11. GT says:

    Hey code enforcement how come I can’t keep a boat in my yard but in the R section you can have people using your driveway as a motel?

  12. Anonymous says:

    Can he now now designated as a violent repeat offender? How much evidence does the court need–that he actually succeeds in killing somebody?

  13. truth says:

    a young black male from a broken family with anger issues that has trouble staying out of jail. Sometimes stereotypes exist not to reinforce the division in our societys but to bridge them; and this young man was never given a chance in the world. Sad.

  14. Sw says:

    @truth NEVER given a chance by himself. Bad choices struck him down NOT Society

  15. Mike Chumley says:

    We live in Marietta, Ga. and are thinking to retire to Palm Coast in a couple more years. What sections of Palm Coast are recommended for low to no crime. Seems like the “R” section is ghetto according to these posts. Thanks for guiding decent folks to decent and safe places to live.

  16. Howard Duley says:

    Check and see where the politicians live. I’m sure they don’t live among the garbage. The rest of us are trapped here.

  17. LawAbidingCitizen says:

    Yankees from ny, nj, conn…. because the southerners aren’t ruining this town either? c’mon its not just yankees

  18. Sw says:

    @ Move to a city where its safe

  19. Bc. says:

    Move to flagler beach

  20. woodchuck says:

    Not all of the R section is bad,every section has it’s problem some worse than others.Thank god my street is great with good neighbors and few rentals.Before the rental people tear me a new one,I too rented while my house was being built.Rental houses are only as good as the land lords.If the land lord doesn’t care it is likey the tenents won’t care either.The E section might be in question next.

  21. Anonymous says:

    Just how do these repeat offenders stay out to prey on the rest of us???

  22. Hmmm says:

    First off, there is no ghetto/hood in Palm Coast. Period. There isnt zero crime or problems here, but this is a good town. Someone was talking about moving to St Augustine. How much experience do you have with that town? I lived there for a couple years. If you think Palm Coast is bad, my advice is dont travel out of town!!!

    It looks like he was “given” more then just one chance….

    Charged three times in the last eight years with resisting arrest, among man y other charges (some of them violent),

  24. Lauren C. says:

    @Hmmm, THANK YOU!! That couldn’t have been said any better. I’ve been living in the “R” section for the past 17 years and have never experience any craziness. We live in a great town! Yes, it is not perfect but every place has it’s issues. We just happen to be a small town where things “echo” louder that bigger cities.

  25. Respect says:

    This is my cousin and you guys don’t have a right to opinions on this yes he’s messed up plenty of times he’s well aware but I’m sure if this was any of your family members you wouldn’t appreciate someone talking down on your family’s name and your family member, have a blessed day.

  26. Richard Smith says:

    Well then how many times does a person have to “mess up” before they “get it”? Once, twice or three times where in California they finally put you away forever. Maybe you and your family ought to spend more time teaching your cousin right from wrong or better yet take him to bible school. You have a Blessed day also!

  27. Truth Teller says:

    @Respect. Please be advised that we absolutely DO have a right to our opinions and to express them in this venue (hence the post comment option). And you have the right not to like our opinion(s). As Richard stated, and I’m sure many of us agree, how may times does a person have to “mess up” before they are truly held accountable? Especially for repeat offenses as is the case here (lets not overlook that aggravated assault seems to be his forte). Family or not, wrong is wrong, and he is responsible and accountable for his actions. We can only hope he is sentenced accordingly. Continue to have a Blessed day!

  28. Katie Semore says:

    @Respect, your family member beats up on women, and has a history of criminal activities. What exactly is your opinion of him?
