Talking to 10News from the George F. Bailey Detention Center, Dominic Barone said his memory from the night of the standoff is foggy, and he struggles to find the words for why he even went to that convenience store.

“Little bits and pieces but not very much,” Barone said. “I remember waking up being bit by dogs.”

Barone was taken down by a police dog after the two-hour standoff. A week later, he still had the cuts on his arms and said that he was also shot by a bean bag.

“I want to say I’m sorry for any inconvenience that I’ve caused anyone,” Barone said. “I promise I wont go in any 7-Elevens and do that ever again.”

Barone said he struggles with meth, and if he ever gets out of jail, would like to go to rehab.

“I got into it and I pray no one else gets into it, you know, it’s bad news, a lot of people use it,” he said.

Barone also had a message for his family, who he said, hadn’t visited him in jail.

“If I could (I would) tell my girlfriend I love her, my family I love them,” Barone said.
