Weathersfield man out on bond after warrant arrest

WEATHERSFIELD — A township man pleaded guilty to a charge of disorderly conduct in exchange for other charges being dismissed, court officials say.

Robert Williams, 44, of 3558 Bee St. Apt. 2, was charged with disorderly conduct, obstructing official business and resisting arrest, though the latter were dropped as part of his guilty plea.

The charge stems from an April 2 incident in which police were called to the Bee Street address where Weathersfield police found Williams face down on the ground, mumbling and foaming at the mouth, a police report states.

The report states Williams then stood straight up and charged police twice before attempting to walk away from the area. When officers told Williams to come back, he then turned and put “both hands together in the form of a gun” while pointing at officers and then charged at them a third time, the report states.

Officers used a stun gun on Williams, but it had no effect. Williams then continued walking toward Burnett Street and state Route 46. He eventually returned while officers were getting another cartridge for the stun gun and started walking toward a woman. Police held Williams at stun gun point until backup arrived.

Williams was detained and was given a dose of ketamine when paramedics arrived. While on the stretcher, officers found a pocket knife in his pocket. Williams was taken to St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital.

The woman told police Williams was just released from the hospital, became aggressive and she had “never seen him act like this before and was scared for her life,” the report states.

Niles Municipal Court officials said Williams appeared Monday and was handed a $250 fine plus court costs and a year of probation for the guilty plea.
