A man was arrested on Friday after an Oneida County Sheriff’s Deputy reporting to work at the County Office Building encountered the man allegedly threatening to pull a gun in the employee parking lot.

Sheriff Rob Maciol says 48-year-old Fernando Guantero, who is homeless, was walking in the employee parking toward the County Office Building just before 8:30AM.

Maciol says Guantero was shirtless and screaming obscenities about pulling a gun and shooting people.

The off-duty Deputy followed Guantero while waiting for help from on-duty Deputies.

Officials say Guantero then threatened a county employee as he exited his car in the parking lot.

Deputies intervened and detained Guantero, where it was determined that he did not have a gun..

Guantero was charged with Physical, Harassment and Disorderly Conduct.

Because of New York Bail Reform Laws, Guantero was released on appearance ticket returnable to Utica City Court.
