DANBURY, Conn. — Officers responding to a report of a disturbance at the Danbury Library at noon Tuesday arrived to find a 300-pound man throwing books and chairs while yelling and screaming, police said.
Several officers were sent to the library at 170 Main St. for a disturbance, police said. A man, later identified as Jeremy Small, 32, of Danbury, had reportedly thrown chairs and flipped a table, police said. All this occurred in the vicinity of several elderly patrons, police said.
Small, who is 6-foot-2, had a blank look during the disturbance and was unresponsive to officers' commands, police said.
At one point, Small pushed over a bookcase and threw books at the officers, police said.
Small actively resisted two separate Taser deployments but was eventually taken into custody, police said.
Small was charged with first-degree criminal mischief, second-degree reckless endangerment, breach of peace, and interfering.
He was released on a written promise to appear and given a court date of June 16.. Small was then transported to Danbury Hospital for evaluation.
The library was briefly closed for cleanup after the disturbance.
