BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — A “visibly irate” Trumbull man was arrested Tuesday night when a quick-thinking police officer stopped him from entering an East End deli carrying a hatchet, according to the Connecticut Post .
Sgt. Jason Amato was on patrol when he saw Timothy Frey, 23, of Haviland Drive, leave the Sunshine Deli on Stratford Avenue, grab a hatchet from a parked truck and head back towards the deli, the Post said.
Amato was able to convince Frey to drop the weapon, the Post said. Witnesses told police a man in the deli had flipped Frey’s hat off just before Frey ran out.
Frey was charged with carrying a dangerous weapon and was later released on $1,500 bond, the Post said.
