Man arrested following 12-hour standoff with CCSO, Marshals Office
ORANGE PARK – A man wanted for a hit and run death in Jacksonville was arrested after a 12-hour standoff with the Clay County Sheriff’s Office and the U.S. Marshals Service.
Horace O’Neal Jackson, 32, of Jacksonville, was taken into custody at 12:53 a.m. on June 8 and charged with resisting law enforcement with violence and three counts of battery on a law enforcement officer after the Marshals office tracked him down to a friend’s home on Malibu Circle.
A warrant was issued on May 11 in Duval County for the hit and run. The Marshals Office checked one of Jackson’s friends in Orange Park and learned Jackson was inside his house. Members of CCSO and the Marshals Office surrounded the house. Jackson threatened to kill himself if deputies entered the home, according to the arrest report. More than 50 deputies were at the scene, and residents were forced out of their homes for a half-day.
Jackson refused to leave after deputies shot tear gas into the home. A robot was deployed and it detected Jackson was hiding in the attic. When he climbed down, he kicked and “flailed” at one of the arresting officers, striking him several times with his forearms and elbows to the deputy’s chest, according to the arrest report. Jackson tried to climb back into the attic, and Jackson struck a second deputy with blows to his chest and arms. Jackson lost his grip of one of the rafters and fell, but he continued to fight with a third deputy before he was finally restrained.
Jackson was taken to HCA Florida Orange Park Hospital where he was treated and released to CCSO custody for prolonged exposure to tear gas.
Jackson also is expected in court on July 11 to face charges of attempting to flee law enforcement with lights and siren active, possession of marijuana and a controlled substance, resisting arrest, driving with a suspended license, reckless driving, four counts of reckless driving and four counts of leaving the scene of an accident with property damage after he crashed his car on Jan. 24, 2021, following a brief chase in Orange Park.
Jackson’s bond for the standoff was set at $200,012.
CCSO: Community activist arrested for identity theft
GREEN COVE SPRINGS – A man with prior convictions for fraud and identity theft turned himself into the Clay County Sheriff’s Office after the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office charged him stealing the identities of others to obtain more than $100,000 in bank loans.
Siottis Jackson, 34, was charged with criminal use of personal identification to fraudulently obtain more than $100,000.
JSO said on its social media platforms Jackson “used other individual’s personal information, without their expressed permission or consent, to obtain fraudulent bank loans in excess of $100,000.”
According to the arrest warrant, Jackson used First Coast Leadership Foundation of Jacksonville Pastor Reginald Gundy’s personal identification information to obtain loans.
Jackson has a former connection to former U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown, who pled guilty to tax fraud as part of a plea deal. She originally was found guilty of 18 counts of using her charity as a personal slush fund in 2017.
According to JSO, Jackson is the Chief Operating Office for the First Coast Leadership Foundation, where he was responsible for generating funds for the nonprofit through loans, donations and grants. Seven months ago, Mount Sinai Baptist Church notified JSO it was contacted by a collection agency that it owed $50,000.
Jackson had an active arrest warrant for the criminal use of personal information in excess of $100,000. Officials said Jackson is accused of obtaining fraudulent bank loans with other individuals’ personal information.
According to the police report, Jackson is the Chief Operational Officer for the First Coast Leadership Foundation and his job is to accrue loans, grants and funding for FCLF. In December, someone at Mount Sinai Baptist Church contacted the sheriff’s office after getting a letter from a collection agency advising that a $50,000 loan needed to be paid. JSO contacted Jackson, who made statements that were redacted in the report.
Jackson’s bond was set at $50,003, according to a report.
Jackson released a statement after he posted a $50,003 bond on June 10 that said: “I would like to ask the public for three things. First, please continue to support the entities, candidates, initiatives, elected officials, activities, family or friends related/connected to me. This situation has absolutely NOTHING to do with anyone I am connected with and I ask the public to treat it as such. I ask that the public not allow this matter to negatively reflect on others. There is much work to do and those who I was connected with will continue to do the work our community needs.”
According to court records, he has two prior felony convictions for fraud and identity theft.
Angry men charged with attacking, threatening sister
KEYSTONE HEIGHTS – Two men were arrested after the Clay County Sheriff’s Office said they hit her with a car and threatened one the men’s sister with a handgun.

The mother took the sister’s two children and tried to escape, but her car was blocked in the driveway by Lindsey’s car. According to CCSO, Lindsey threatened to “end her life” and he started to reach for her purse and attempted to use pepper spray from the purse. Williams then grabbed his sister by the throat and pushed her back into the car. She pulled her gun and fired one warning shot into the air.
According to the arrest report, Williams twice tried to run over his sister with the car and the sister responded by firing another five or six shots into the air. Williams was able to hit his sister on his third attempt, CCSO said.
Williams and Lindsey left the house and were pulled over on County Road 352.
Williams’ bond was set at $45,008, while Lindsey’s bond was set at $50,003.
Lumpkin now faces manslaughter charges following home invasion
GREEN COVE SPRINGS – A man already in jail for restraining an elderly couple with duct tape for two days now faces new charges of manslaughter and destroying evidence after deputies unearthed bones at the home off County Road 315.
Aubrey Lamar Lumpkin, 46, is being held at the Clay County Jail without bond after he told detectives he got in an argument with a woman two years ago and he “struck her multiple times about the face and head,” according to the most-recent arrest report. He also admitted dragging her 100 yards into the woods and burying her.
Deputies with the Clay County Sheriff’s Office, Clay County Fire Rescue, Pasco County Sheriff’s Office, Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the University of Florida’s anthropology department found the shallow grave in a secluded area four days after Lumpkin was arrested for armed home invasion, adult false imprisonment and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon on April 11. Lumpkin also admitted he assumed the dead woman’s identity on social media to get money from her parents.
The medical examiner couldn’t determine the exact cause of death, but the report said there was “trauma to the neck, left side of the face and mouth area.”
As requested by the family, the woman’s identity wasn’t released by the sheriff’s office.
Lumpkin is scheduled for a review at the Clay County Courthouse on July 11.
