Nibley man arrested in connection with 7-Eleven standoff

LOGAN — A 63-year-old Nibley man has been arrested on federal weapons charges, in connection with a standoff that occurred last month at a convenience store. David J. D’Addabbo was booked Wednesday on one count of possession or use of a dangerous weapon by a restricted person.

Logan City Police Capt. Curtis Hooley said agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives served a warrant to D’Addabbo’s home following a grand jury indictment. He was taken into custody without incident.

On October 29, police report officers noticed a truck, driven by D’Addabbo, travelling along US-89/91. The vehicle appeared to have homemade license plates.

When he pulled the truck into the parking lot of the 7-Eleven, at 400 North and Main Street, they attempted to make contact with him. D’Addabbo barricaded himself inside the truck and said he would rather die than go to jail.

For almost two hours, police attempted to negotiate with him, as officers and SWAT team members surrounded the truck. During the standoff, D’Addabbo said he had a weapon but never made any specific threats to anyone on the scene.

He eventually exited the truck without incident and was allowed to leave with a member of his family. Officers later found a handgun inside the truck.

D’Addabbo has a history of making threats against the government. He recently wrote a letter stating he would defend himself until death to protect against government collusion.

D’Addabbo is being held in the Davis County Jail without bail. He is expected to be arraigned in federal court later this week.
