Responding to a 9-1-1 call at an Armstrong Street residence early Dec. 22, Bonifay police and Holmes County Sheriff’s Office deputies found Patrick Richard Hazell, of 801 Banfill Ave., asleep on a bed, according to a Bonifay police spokesman.

The occupant of the residence told police he discovered Hazell asleep, holding the occupant’s loaded .22-caliber handgun. A number of the occupant’s personal items were on the bed with Hazell, the spokesman said.
