Sheriff Lance Bonds states that on May 29, 2018, Dispatch received a 911 call of a single car roll over at 540 Big Springs Rd. Deputy arrived on scene and subject was standing over what appeared to be a victim of the accident. The 1st Responders told the deputy that Subject was trying to get the injured person up. During the process of first responders helping the injured subject on the ground, Mr. Justin Guy pushed on the emergency workers who are both over 60 years old. The deputy was familiar with the subject from a previous incident having occurred in Stone County in March 2018. From that incident, the deputy had prior knowledge that the subject was a felon. The deputy was able to get the subject moved away and he stated that he was driving the vehicle. He continued by saying that he was going to get a DWI. The deputy attempted to place him under arrest as he began to make threats to the first responders and the deputy. The subject made threats and continued resisting. Additional Deputies arrived on scene and he was placed in the back of the patrol vehicle. The subject still resisting arrest kicked the glass out of the passenger rear vehicle. Guy then crawled over the back seat and grabbed a shotgun. Deputies responded by pulling their duty weapons and wrestling the shot gun away from Guy. Deputies were able get him back in the rear seat. He continued making threats and exhibited behavior of being under the influence of narcotics. The subject stated that he had enough guns at his house to kill all of the deputies. Mr. Guy singled out two deputies with his threats saying “ I will kill you and your entire family.” And “I will disembowel that guy.” He kept stating to deputies that he will kill all of their family members and there is nowhere to hide.
