PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - UPDATE 09/30/22 1:59 P.M: BCSO has taken Scott Mario Lombardi into custody. Deputies say they received a complaint early Friday afternoon that Lombardi had allegedly stolen a vehicle.

When deputies initially located and conducted a traffic stop, Lombardi reportedly sped off and rammed into a patrol vehicle as he got away to his Callaway residence.

Officials say BCSO SWAT and a negotiator came on scene and were able to take the 41-year-old into custody. Lombardi now faces charges for grand theft of fleeing and eluding and aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer.

A man is currently barricaded inside his home after fleeing from police, according to the Bay County Sheriff’s Office.

On Friday morning, deputies say they pulled over a vehicle after suspecting it was stolen. The driver allegedly did not stop, sped away, and drove to his house at Callaway Chase Circle in Callaway.

According to officials, the man ran inside and barricaded the entrances.

BCSO deputies say the road to the home has been blocked off to any through traffic, and a member of BCSO Negotiation Team has responded to the scene. Warrants for grand theft have reportedly been obtained.
