Greenwich Man Accused of Threatening Family

GREENWICH, Conn. – A man who Greenwich police said threatened to shoot his family and himself during an argument was arrested Friday.

Manuel Gonzalez, 20, of 327 Hamilton Ave., threatened to cut the throat of a family member when she said she was going to call 911, police said. He then threatened to shoot himself and the family if they tried to call 911, police said. Officers surrounded the residence and convinced Gonzalez and his brother to come outside. Police said they tased Gonzalez when he would not cooperate. He was charged, then taken to Greenwich Hospital to be committed for treatment. His brother was detained, then released without charges. A BB gun was found in the house after the arrest.

Gonzalez was charged with using a facsimile firearm, disorderly conduct, interfering with a 911 call, threatening and reckless endangerment. He was held on a $50,000 bond and was due in court Monday.
