Tyrone Lashawn Roy, 30, was already known to police, having been arrested multiple times throughout eastern Bergen County over the past decade, mostly for drug- and traffic-related offenses but also for making terroristic threats, records show.

Officers found him at closing time outside a bar and restaurant across from the Centre on Anderson Avenue around 2 a.m. last Friday, May 5, Cliffside Park Police Deputy Chief Vincent Capano said.

Roy resisted, had to be handcuffed and was found carrying a .22-caliber handgun, the deputy chief said.

Police in Edgewater and Cliffside Park charged him with aggravated assault and weapons counts -- including possessing a firearm as a convicted felon -- among other offenses.

Roy remained held in the Bergen County Jail on Tuesday.
