OKALOOSA COUNTY, Fla. (WALA) - According to officials, a renter armed himself with a shotgun and refused to leave when an Okaloosa County Sheriff’s deputy went to his Crestview residence to serve papers Monday afternoon, October 28.
Deputies said they went to that address to serve DeWayne Moore, a renter, a “Writ of Possession” for eviction.
Officials said after no one responded to knocks on the locked front and back doors, a locksmith was called to open the back door. They said it had been barricaded with household appliances.
The deputy said he spotted a man who entered a bedroom and kept saying “This is my house”.
When the deputy went to the doorway of the bedroom, he said the man had a shotgun on his shoulder and pointed in his direction. The deputy left out the front door, which had also been barricaded.
The Crestview Police Department arrived to assist and after a more than two hour stand-off, Moore was taken into custody. Deputies took Moore to the Okaloosa County Jail and the property was turned over to its owner.
Moore is charged with aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, a second degree felony.
