The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office has arrested three local men on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in three separate incidents over the last two days.
The first arrest took place Monday in Destin.
44-year old Alfred George Price of 813 Main Street is accused of intentionally pointing a shotgun at his roommates and screaming that he was going to kill them.
The roommates say they fled for their lives while yelling and stomping on the floors to alert neighbors at the apartment complex. Multiple neighbors heard the screams for help and called the Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies found a 12 gauge shotgun and Glock .22 handgun in Price’s room.
He is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill and violation of a domestic violence injunction that prohibited him from possessing firearms.
In a second unrelated incident, the OCSO has charged 32-year old Enrique Jamah Hill of Shalimar with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill and possession of a firearm under the influence of alcohol.
Deputies were called to 40 Eglin Street Monday in reference to an armed disturbance in progress.
Deputies say Hill’s girlfriend told them he’d been drinking alcohol all afternoon and while she was outside talking to neighbors, Hill came out with a shotgun and began waving it around. She says he went back into the home and she heard a shotgun noise. Deputies found a hole on the top of a dresser inside the bedroom closet and in a flat screen TV in the bathtub. The shotgun was found between the mattresses in the bedroom.
The third incident took place in the early morning hours of Tuesday at Cedars Condominiums in Mary Esther.
28-year old Joseph Ryan Dobson is accused of pointing a gun at his fiancé and a friend after watching a documentary on Adolph Hitler.
Dobson’s fiancé says he then pointed the weapon towards the ceiling and fired two shots. Deputies found Dobson inside the condominium on the bedroom floor, highly intoxicated.
Dobson is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without the intent to kill and discharging a firearm while under the influence of alcohol.
No one was injured in any of the three incidents.
