The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office Special Response Team was able to convince a Fort Walton Beach man with felony warrants to eventually come out of a townhouse after he initially refused to exit.
The stand-off at Pine Aly in Fort Walton Beach lasted more than three hours. 39-year old Tavares Gainer surrendered without further incident after SRT members entered the home’s first floor.
Deputies were attempting to serve Gainer with warrants on two counts of obstructing justice - tampering with a felony proceeding.
He now faces an additional charge of resisting without violence.
