Utica Man Arrested After Swinging A Dagger At Sheriff’s Deputies
A Utica man was arrested on several charges Sunday following an incident at a relative's residence in the Town of Floyd.
According to the Oneida County Sheriff's Office, deputies responded to a report of a disturbance at a home on Sandy Circle. When they arrived, a man confronted them with a dagger and refused orders to drop the weapon.
The man allegedly continued swinging the dagger at deputies and pepper spray was eventually deployed. The man finally dropped the weapon and was taken into custody without further incident.
23-year-old Robert Carcone of Utica was transferred to the Oneida County Sheriff's Office law enforcement building and charged with Felony Menacing a Police Officer.
He's also facing misdemeanor charges of criminal possession of a weapon, resisting arrest, criminal mischief and menacing another party prior to law enforcement’s arrival.
