Stopped car leads to several charges

A Salisbury man who refused a blood-alcohol content test and threatened police officers was arrested early Sunday morning, according to arrest warrants.

Around 2:37 a.m. Sunday, Salisbury police responded to a call about a car that was staying stationary at the flashing light at the intersection of East Fisher and South Main streets.

The warrant says the “driver was stationary at flashing light for over 5 minutes while impeding traffic.”

That driver was Ronald Carlo McDaniel, 42, of the 100 block of Rattlesnake Street.

While he was in police custody, he refused to allow his blood to be drawn for a blood-alcohol content test, and threatened a police officer by telling him that he had an automatic rifle and that he would “put a hole in his head.”

When officers searched McDaniel, they found a handgun, which he had failed to disclose.

McDaniel received a traffic citation for driving while impaired and was charged with misdemeanor resisting a public officer, misdemeanor communicating threats, misdemeanor concealing a gun after consuming alcohol and failure to notify an investigating officer about a concealed weapon. His bond was set at $10,000

Richardson’s bond was set at $1,500.
