Stand Off in Poquito Bayou Results In One Behind Bars

March 10, 2017

A Shalimar man who initially refused to come out of his home on Thursday when Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrived to arrest him is now in custody.

Thomas Joe Obregon

Traffic was rerouted around several streets in the Poquito Bayou neighborhood as a precaution after 41-year old Tommy Obregon locked himself inside a home on Hickory Avenue in response to a warrant service. The reason for the warrant was because his bond was revoked earlier this month when he failed to appear on multiple charges, including possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, and driving with a suspended license.

After Obregon decided not to cooperate, the OCSO Special Response Team and K9 Units responded to the home. The front door was ultimately breached around 1:50 p.m. and Obregon then surrendered without further incident.

No one was injured during the stand-off.
