A Bristol man is accused of threatening neighbors with a gun, then barricading himself and two family members in his Farmington Avenue home and fighting with officers who tried to arrest him.
Damase Caron, 56, of 956 Farmington Avenue in Bristol, was arrested Friday morning after he reportedly showed up with a rifle at his neighbors’ house on Britton Road. It happened around 7:35 a.m., according to police.
Police said Caron had returned home by the time officers arrived on scene. They found him barricaded inside the house, along with his estranged wife and 7-year-old granddaughter.
Police surrounded the property and began negotiations with Caron in an attempt to get him to come out. Caron finally agreed and walked outside, but became argumentative and belligerent, authorities said.
Caron was taken into police custody and charged with resisting arrest, three counts of second-degree threatening, second-degree breach of peace, risk of injury to a minor, criminal use of a firearm and first-degree reckless endangerment.
He is being held on a $100,000 bond and is due in court Aug. 26.
