Fury over Facebook postings
An argument over comments posted on the social website Facebook landed a man behind bars over the weekend and in City Court
Bail was set by Judge John C. Gannon Sunday at $1,000 for Carlos Y. Roque, 39, of 119 Henry St., Apt. 2, charged with fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon, resisting arrest, fourth-degree criminal mischief, second-degree menacing and second-degree harassment. He re-appeared in court Monday, and his case was adjourned to Nov. 7.
Police said at 1:30 a.m. Oct. 16, while at his residence, Roque possessed a metal dagger and used it to threaten his girlfriend during an argument over comments he posted about her and a friend. During the dispute, Roque also threw the victim’s cell phone to the ground, causing it to shatter. Police said Roque also threw a laptop computer and tossed her cell phone in the toilet. He also slammed the woman against a door and urinated on her. While being placed under arrest, Roque also refused to put his hands behind his back to be handcuffed and struggled with an officer, causing him and two other officers to fall to the floor, police said.
