FALCONER — A Falconer man faces several charges after New York State Police responded to a domestic complaint Monday, after he allegedly damaged property and fired a rifle inside the residence.
Christian Powell, 24, was charged with first-degree criminal contempt, second-degree reckless endangerment, second-degree menacing, fourth-degree criminal mischief, resisting arrest and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child.
Troopers responded to a Falconer residence for a report of a disorderly male throwing items. Police said Powell allegedly broke several items in the residence, punched holes in the walls and shot two rounds from a rifle inside the residence.
The incident occurred in the presence of the victim, a protected party in a stay-away order and the victim’s two minor children.
Powell physically resisted when he was being placed under arrest, police said.
He was then transported to SP Jamestown and while in custody, Powell intentionally struck the drywall in the patrol room, causing damage, according to police.
Powell was then processed and transported to the Chautauqua County Jail.
