The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office’s SWAT team was called out to 53 Buffalo Grove Drive Sunday morning, where a domestic disturbance unfolded after 7:30.

The SWAT team was called out of precaution, because James White, who eventually surrendered and was arrested, was believed to own several weapons in the house. Also, he was drunk. Family members left the house, but White initially refused to surrender. Negotiations continued for two hours, when he relented.

The situation ended just after 9:30 a.m., Debbie Johnson, the sheriff’s office’s spokeswoman, said. Several guns along with ammunition, bows, arrows and knives were removed from the home.

White, 52, was arrested and booked into the Flagler County jail. He was charged with domestic violence-assault, battery involving domestic violence, and resisting arrest without violence.

    The NRA & the ‘oh but there’s so, so few insane people with a house full of guns’…people are working on my last ‘2nd Amendment RIGHT ‘ speech nerve.

    And women/ domestically abused//threatened women… don’t enable these idiots. Take all those guns, and if you can, sell or get $50 each from FCSO. Like the old saying…you need this guy like a fish needs a bicycle’…plenty sane guys out there.

    GREAT that this situation was stopped in its tracks by a brave woman who called 911.

    So many & some in Palm Coast … waited too long to blow the whistle on their crazy partner.

    Kudos and keep on keeping on to the woman in this situation. May she be the ‘canary in the coal mine’ to other readers of this story.

      Gun’s do not make people crazy. People are crazy on their own. —- “Proud retired military, lawful and concealed weapons permit holder” I might just save yours or a family members life someday from a violent crime….you never know. I would rather carry and have that option in my deck of cards….

    Well Bonnie, just because you and Clyde had a falling out doesn’t mean all men are insane gun owners. Besides my wife owns 4 guns herself and she’s not insane. She does however, sometimes gets an attitude and knocks me in the head with her shoe. Should I have her arrest for Domestic Violence and have the FCSO steal her guns too ?

  4. Anon says:

    NRA is not a “men’s only” organization. Women who feel domestically abused and threatened have equal rights to own and use guns.

    btw: the warning from the canary in the coal mine is that it dies . I would not wish this on any woman, but instead to educate and empower themselves with their Civil Liberties. And a Glock.
