Man accused of fighting officers
HERKIMER — A Herkimer County man is facing multiple charges after law enforcers said he tried to fight with officers who interrupted a domestic dispute early Thursday morning.
Police were dispatched to a residence on William Street at 2 a.m. for reports of a domestic dispute, and there were sounds of a disturbance inside the home as they approached.
Police said they were met at the door by 29-year-old Jeffrey McNeil, who immediately began threatening to harm and kill the officers.
McNeil started to fight back as the officers began to take him into custody, police said. He was eventually subdued, and police said they learned he was violating an order of protection filed on behalf of a woman and two children at the residence.
McNeil is charged with three counts of criminal contempt and one count each of governmental obstruction, resisting arrest, endangering the welfare of a child, disorderly conduct and harassment, police said. He was arraigned in court and was released to obtain bail, but never returned to court with the money, authorities said.
McNeil was tracked down at the county Probation department and he was taken back into custody, police said. McNeil was sent to county jail in lieu of $1,000 cash bail or $2,000 bond. He is scheduled to reappear in court.
