Responding Wednesday night to a report that Kaylee Bailey, 815 Chester Avenue was being held against her will, officers found her outside and she told them she was able to get out but it was her house and she wanted to go in and retrieve .40-caliber pistol. She said the man inside, John Lockett III, 36, "shouldn't have a gun," according to reports. Officers told Lockett he needed to let Bailey inside, but he reportedly continued being uncooperative, yelling at officers and Bailey. He came outside and locked Bailey out with two children inside, officers said. When he unlocked the door so Bailey could go in, he was told to stay outside, but followed her to the bedroom. As she attempted to get the pistol from underneath the mattress, officers saw an assault rifle and retrieved it. Lockett tried to get past officers and was charged with obstructing official business. After Bailey reported he slapped her in the face when she tried to call for help, Lockett was also charged with domestic violence. Officers reported finding six marijuana plants on a stand in the dining room and said Lockett had $1,140 in his possession which was seized. Officers reported other charges could be filed after learning that the assault rifle had been reported stolen.
