Barricaded man arrested


A 31-year-old Key West man involved in an apparent domestic dispute was arrested Wednesday morningafter he refused to exit a trailer on Stock Island.


Dontrell Adrian Holloway was charged with possession of Oxycodone without a prescription and resisting arrest.


There were three young children, ages 3, 4 and 6, in the trailer who were not harmed.


The incident occurred near the corner of 5th Avenue and 5th Street at approximately 1:53 a.m. after a taxi driver dropped off a 27-year-old female. The taxi driver waited for the female to return to pay him when he reportedly heard a loud commotion inside the trailer as did another reporting person. The taxi driver also reported hearing possible gunfire.


Deputies responded to the trailer. A male there, later identified as Holloway, barricaded himself inside and refused to exit.


The Sheriff’s Office SWAT Team, Hostage Negotiators, Key West Police, Florida Highway Patrol and U.S. Border Patrol all responded to the scene.


Holloway finally exited the trailer at 6:18 a.m. without incident. Two Oxycodone pills were found in his possession. There were no firearms found.


The female who arrived in the taxi was not found and apparently left prior to law enforcement arrival.


The Department of Children and Families was notified regarding the children.


Holloway was taken to jail.
