A 15-year old Crestview teen arrested in March for possession of a firearm on school property was arrested again today, this time on charges of carrying a concealed firearm, possession of a weapon or ammo by a delinquent, and resisting arrest without violence.
Jabari Imani was spotted around 7:30 a.m. near an Okaloosa Academy bus stop on Cross Drive in Crestview, where a witness says he raised his shirt and displayed a firearm in his pants waistband.
Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office deputies made contact with Imani a short time later.
He was uncooperative and denied being in possession of a gun. They quickly spotted the firearm gaping through a hole in his pants. Imani says he had just found it while walking.
The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office had previously arrested Imani on March 28th after he was found with an unloaded gun in his waistband on school grounds at Crestview High School, where he had previously been a student.
Ammunition and marijuana were also located at a shed he had been living in temporarily during that time outside a friend’s home. The March incident resulted in four felony charges.
