The Coast Guard assisted local agencies in the arrest of a man near Destin on Wednesday.
Coast Guard Sector Mobile Command Center received a report of a 49-foot sailing vessel blocking the East Pass. Upon investigation, Sector Mobile watchstanders found that one person aboard the vessel had an active warrant out for his arrest in Lee County.
Coast Guard Station Destin escorted a deputy sheriff from Okaloosa County to take custody of the individual, for transport to Lee County for prosecution.
According to the Okaloosa County Jail website, Darian Austin Busby, 41, was wanted in Lee County for possession of controlled substance without prescription and resisting an officer without violence.
The Coast Guard removed the vessel from the channel, and is working with Busby’s family to ensure that the sailing vessel is appropriately salvaged.
