HERKIMER – A Herkimer man is facing a list of charges after he allegedly violated an order of protection and then threatened police officers, according to the Herkimer Police Department.
Around 2 a.m. Thursday, Herkimer Police responded to a possible fight at a residence on William Street, and officers could hear a disturbance as they approached.
Police were met at the door by 29-year-old Jeffrey McNeil, who allegedly began threatening to harm and kill the officers. When police tried taking him into custody, they say McNeil physically resisted.
Police say that once they had McNeil in custody, they found that he was violating an order of protection in place for a woman and her two children that lived at the William Street address.
McNeil is charged with three counts of criminal contempt, obstruction of governmental administration, resisting arrest, endangering the welfare of a child, disorderly conduct and harassment. He was held for arraignment, and then during arraignment he was released to obtain his bail, but police say he did not return back to court.
McNeil was found at Herkimer County Probation, taken back into custody and he was sent to the Herkimer County Jail on $1,000 bail or $2,000 bond.
