Man Arrested for Aggravated Harassment of Ackerman by Lori Gross - Bayside, NY Patch
Man made 40 calls “of a rambling nature" to U.S. Reps office, also allegedly threatening law enforcement
NCPD’s Special Investigations Detective Squad visited the home of James Guarnaccio, 55, in Hicksville on Thursday after the torrent of calls, allegedly made between Dec. 23 and Jan. 1.
The calls, according to NCPD were, “of a rambling nature and were not threats against the Congressman.”
During the visit, detectives told Guarnaccio to stop phoning Ackerman, or he would be arrested.
That evening through the morning, he made seven more calls to the Congressman’s office, making what NCPD describe as “threats against local and federal law enforcement.”
He was arrested on Friday, and taken to Nassau University Medical Center for evaluation, where he was arraigned at bedside on Saturday.
