PALM COAST, Fla. - A domestic disturbance Wednesday night forced deputies to close area roads and keep neighbors inside their homes.
Flagler County Sheriff's Deputies responded to reports of shots fired on Blare Drive, according to a release from the FCSO.
Deputies learned that the incident stemmed from a domestic disturbance involving Jason Lambert, 32, of Palm Coast.
According to the release, Lambert's wife and mother-in-law came home to walk the couple's dog and allegedly found Lambert, "extremely intoxicated," with a gun on his hip in a holster.
Lambert and his wife got into an argument, according to the FCSO, and Lambert allegedly armed himself with a handgun and threatened both women. The release states, the two women then fled the residence and while driving away, heard Lambert discharge the firearm.
As a result, area roads were closed and a perimeter outside of Lambert's residence was established. Deputies also notified nearby neighbors to stay inside their homes.
According to the release, when deputies were able to approach Lambert's home, they noticed Lambert, "lying on the floor inside in an apparent intoxicated state." Deputies were able to take Lambert into custody without further incident.
Lambert was booked into the Flagler County Detention Facility with no bond and is facing charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, aggravated assault domestic violence, possession or use of a firearm while under the influence of alcohol and shooting or throwing a deadly missile.
Lambert is scheduled for a first appearance in court Thursday afternoon.
