A Williston man who told deputies he was distraught because he didn’t have a job, money or food, barricaded himself in his home Christmas Eve.
The man was armed with a pump .22 rifle, according to the sheriff’s report.
After a two-hour stand off, deputies were able to negotiate him out of the residence. The man was Baker-acted and transported to Gainesville to the Crisis Stabilization Unit (CSU), which helps patients with mental health issues.
