Danbury Police: Man in Custody Kicks Cop, Threatens to Shoot Up Police Department
A routine response to a noise complaint in Danbury took a violent turn for the worst early Wednesday morning (Feb. 15).
According to a press release from the Danbury Police Department, officers were sent to Samuels Court on Scuppo Road in response to a complaint that an intoxicated man was repeatedly pounding on the floor of his apartment. Since this was not the first complaint, 51-year-old, Gary Mayone, of Danbury was given an infraction for creating a public disturbance.
Officers say that while Mayone was being taken into custody, he attempted to headbutt the arresting officer, while struggling with others. As if that wasn't enough action for one noise complaint, Gary Mayone kicked another cop in the leg while being processed at the DPD headquarters, and then again while being evaluated at Danbury Hospital. The report then goes on to say that Mayone announced that he should "Get and assault rifle and shoot up the Danbury Police Department."
Come on, son. You've now gone and launched yourself in a whole world of hurt simply because you couldn't contain yourself from some drunken floor pounding? All you had to do was let your neighbor -- who probably had to be up at the crack of dawn to earn a living -- sleep. Then, instead of calling it a night and falling asleep on your recliner with a nice buzz and Cheetos dust on your chest, you escalate the situation right up to level 12 and get yourself charged with an act of terrorism. Surely, next time you can find a better way to party.
Gary Mayone was charged with two counts of assualt on a police officer, an act of terrorism, and various other charges related to the disturbance. He is being held on a $50,000 bond.
