Charles Vosgueritchian, 37, was arrested after police responded to a West Parish Road address on a report of a disturbance, said Lt. David Farrell.

“Vosgueritchian had an argument with the victims of this incident and broke items in the home during the argument,” Farrell said. “As the officers were taking Vosgueritchian into custody, he began fighting with them, and threatening to kill them.”

He was ultimately handcuffed and brought to an ambulance to be sedated, Farrell said. In the ambulance, Vosgueritchian also spit in the face of a paramedic, he added.

Officers took Vosgueritchian to Norwalk Hospital for evaluation. He was processed after returning from the hospital and is being held in lieu of a $7,500 bond.

He is scheduled to appear in Norwalk Superior Court on Monday.

In January, he was arrested when he was stopped on I-95 and allegedly stomped on a crack pipe found in his possession, police said. (See WestportNow Jan. 13, 2017)

In July 2010, Fairfield police arrested Vosgueritchian after they found a glass pipe with cocaine residue in his baseball hat. He later threatened police and made terrorist statements. (See WestportNow July 29, 2010)

In 2008, he was arrested for stealing poker chips from a table at Mohegan Sun casino. (See WestportNow Dec. 16, 2008)
