A Fort Walton Beach suspect fought with deputies who were serving a warrant overnight.

Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office (OCSO) deputies were trying to arrest 23-year-old Tyree Jones for failure to appear in court for felony battery at his apartment at North Sea Lane but he didn't immediately comply.

Jones reportedly opened his door with weapons in hand but then put them back after he was challenged by deputies.

Deputies say he kicked and pushed deputies after he was taken into custody. They had to use a stun gun to control him so he could be taken to booking.

An arrest report says deputies found a loaded semi-automatic pistol and a 12-gauge shotgun near his door. They also said they found a variety of ammunition.

Jones is charged with possession of a weapon or ammo by a convicted felon and resisting arrest with violence.
