ESCALATED

IN BAY MINETTE THIS EVENING

LEAVING A

MAN BARRICADING HIMSELF INSIDE

HIS

HOME ON TAYLOR STREET FOR

SEVERAL

HOURS.

GABBY EASTERWOOD WAS ON THE

SCENE ALL

NIGHT AND GABBY YOU ACTUALLY

SPOKE WITH

THE MAN WHO REFUSED TO SURRENDER

TO POLICE?

TASHAWN MALLORY SPOKE WITH US ON

THE PHONE WHILE HE WAS INSIDE

HIS HOME AND

HE TELLS US ALONG WITH POLICE

NOW THAT

IT ALL STARTED WITH AN ARGUMENT

BETWEEN HIM AND HIS GIRLFRIEND

ACCORDING TO POLICE, A NEIGHBOR

CALLED

AFTER HEARING THE COUPLE ARGUING

ON

THEIR FRONT LAWN.

AFTER OFFICERS ARRIVED ON SCENE

THEY SAY MALLORY BECAME

AGGRESSIVE

AND TOLD THEM IF THEY DID NOT

LEAVE HIS PROPERTY HE WAS GOING

TO SHOOT THEM.

THAT'S WHEN MALLORY TOOK HIS

ONE-YEAR

OLD SON AND BARRICADED HIMSELF

INSIDE HIS HOME.

AFTER SEVERAL HOURS OF

NEGOTIATING,

MALLORY SURRENDERED TO

POLICE PEACEFULLY AND HIS SON

WAS

CARRIED OUT BY AN OFFICER.

PART OF THE REASON IT ENDED

PEACEFULLY

WAS BECAUSE HE SAYS HE WANTED US

TO BE

THERE WHEN HE LEFT HIS HOME.

HIS FAMILY REACHED OUT TO WKRG

NEWS 5

ABOUT IT AND THAT'S WHEN WE CAME

ON

SCENE.

MALLORY ALSO SPOKE WITH US ON

THE PHONE

WHILE HE WAS STILL BARRICADED IN

HIS

HOME AND THIS IS WHAT HE HAD TO

SAY.

TASHAWN MARTIN:I was scared for

my life. This is

not my first run in with Bay

Minette. Every time I run

into them they are pulling out

their guns threatening

and now they're saying I

threatened them. The only

way I'm coming out is if the

news is out here watching."

SHORTLY AFTER WE SPOKE WITH HIM

ON

THE PHONE OFFICERS ASKED US TO

STEP

AWAY AND WE DID AS TO NOT

INTERFERE WITH THE POLICE

OPERATIONS.

MALLORY IS BEING CHARGED WITH

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IN THE THIRD
