BONITA SPRINGS, Fla - A 911 to Lee County alerted authorities to a woman a child being held against their will by the child's father on Sunshine Drive in Bonita Springs.

When deputies arrived on the scene they were able to convince the man to allow the mother and child to leave the home but he refused to leave.

Investigators learned that man and the child's mother had gotten into an argument over finances and that fight turned physical.

Deputies were unable to confirm whether or not the suspect, 36-year-old Shawn Isom had any weapons, but due to his past violent criminal history the Hostage Negotiation Team and Special Operations Unit responded to the scene to ensure safety in the neighborhood and to bring the incident to a peaceful resolution.

Isom is charged with Domestic Violence Battery, Obstruction of Justice and False Imprisonment.
