A local man faces charges after police say he threatened officers and told them he wanted to die.
William Pabon, 26, of 1020 N. Main Street Ext., Wallingford, was charged with second-degree threatening, resisting arrest and third-degree assault.
Pabon also has warrants out for his arrest from Bridgeport and Seymour. Those warrants charge him with assault, strangulation and violation of protective order, according to a police report.
On Tuesday around 7:35 p.m., police responded to a report that Pabon was hiding at his Wallingford residence. Officers found that Pabon had barricaded himself inside a bathroom closet, the report said.
Pabon threatened police and said: “I want you guys to shoot me,” the report said. After police restrained him, Pabon made threatening statements to officers and expressed that “he wanted to die,” the report said.
Pabon was taken MidState Medical Center in Meriden for evaluation.
He was arraigned in Meriden Superior Court on Wednesday. His bond was set at $500 and he is due back in court on Jan. 16.
