According to the police report, the victim said Galloway was angry when she did not come home by her 10 p.m. curfew.

After about eight hours, police got into the home, but Galloway was not inside.

Action News Jax spoke to his mother, Denise Hanshaw, who said he was at work.

“He’s done some things in life, but that? That was way beyond anything I ever thought he would do,” Hanshaw said.

She spoke to Action News Jax’s Robert Grant. During that time, Galloway called from prison.

“So what’s going on?”, she asked. “I turned myself in, she turned herself in too,” Galloway said.

The person who called police, Mary Ann Scott, was also arrested Monday for false reporting.

“When you do wrong — I’m not going to let that happen. But you weren’t wrong here,” Hanshaw told her son.

Hanshaw said Galloway showed up at her house Sunday morning after the SWAT situation.

She said she told him to turn himself in.

Monday evening, JSO said that Galloway is in custody for prior warrants and Sunday’s incident is still an active investigation.
