A Leon County Commissioner's son has been arrested for armed robbery.

Commissioner Bill Proctor's 19-year-old son Jordan is accused of robbing a pizza delivery man at gunpoint.

According to the police report, fresh pizza and wings were found in Jordan Proctor's apartment along with a gun and the delivery man's cash.

It happened at the Lakes at San Marcos apartment complex near the corner or Capital Circle Southeast and Woodville Highway.

A Pizza Hut delivery man was asked to deliver two large pizzas and chicken wings to apartment 1035.

A complex manager tells us that unit is vacant.

The delivery man said when no one answered, he saw the door at the next apartment,1036, ajar.

The delivery man then said a black male with dark sunglasses and a bandana over his face asked him to lie on the ground and give him all his money.

The delivery man said about $40 was stolen from him.

Commissioner Proctor in a statement about Jordan's arrest said "He's my son and I love him".

"I'm appreciative no one was hurt."

Commissioner Proctor also said his family is asking for prayers from the community.

Complex residents, including Kerrsha Parris, the mother of an infant daughter, are concerned.

"It's a little scary, I have to make sure my doors are locked, everything else is locked kind of frightening being with her," Parris said.

"It does concern me, I just got here yesterday and we were gone for the day yesterday and we came back and found there were police officers all over the area and it concerns me because my granddaughter and daughter live in the building," said Dawn Knight.

After giving a statement to police, Jordan Proctor was charged with armed robbery.

Defense attorney Tim Jansen says he now represents Jordan Proctor and is calling this "a private matter."

Leon County Commissioner "Bill Proctor's son is not an elected official," Jansen said, and he hopes "there will be a fair resolution based on the facts of the case, not anything the commissioner has said or done in the past."

The son of a Leon County Commissioner has been arrested and accused of armed robbery.

19 year old Jordan Proctor – son of longtime commissioner Bill Proctor – is accused of holding up a pizza delivery driver at gunpoint Monday afternoon.

Arrest papers say it happened at about 1:40 p.m. Monday at the Lakes at San Marcos Apartments on Woodville Highway.

A Pizza Hut delivery driver told police he knocked on the door of a third floor apartment to deliver two large pizzas and an order of wings, but no one answered. The driver told police someone opened the door of the apartment next door - 1036 - and a man in a hoodie, sunglasses and a blue and white bandana pointed a “long gun” at him and told him to get on the ground. The driver told police the man in the bandana then told him to empty his pockets and give him all his money.

Arrest papers say when police got there, they knocked on the door of apartment 1036 and a man later identified as Jordan Proctor answered. Officers found two Pizza Hut pizza boxes and a box of wings on the kitchen counter and found a black shotgun in the back bedroom, arrest papers say.

The victim “could not be sure Jordan Proctor was the person who robbed him due to all of the clothing the suspect was wearing to conceal his face. However, the victim could not say Proctor wasn’t the suspect either,” arrest reports say.

Court records show Jordan Proctor told police he was meeting his friend at the apartment to “mix music” and said his friend was inside the apartment eating pizza and wings when he got home from the store. Court records show Proctor later apologized to police for the "bogus story" saying he was hungry and didn't have any money.

We spoke to Leon County Commissioner Bill Proctor about his son’s arrest. “He’s my son and I love him,” Proctor said. "I’m appreciative that no one was hurt.”

Proctor said it’s not a phone call any parent wants or expects. “From this moment forward, we’ll try to recover and I’m hopeful he’ll have a chance to hit the restart button and make a contribution. Our family is asking for prayers right now from the community.”

The judge set a $50,000 bond at Jordan Proctor's first appearance this morning. Court notes say the judge ordered him to be released to his parents, abide by a curfew and told him not to order any pizza.
