Le Roy resident accused of menacing police officers

Timothy Niccloy

A 28-year-old Le Roy man has been accused of brandishing a knife at police officers in Le Roy after the officers tried to restrain him believing he was a threat to himself.

Timothy Niccloy is charged with two counts of menacing a police officer, a Class D felony, and counts of criminal possession of a weapon, obstructing governmental administration and resisting arrest.

Officers responded to his residence May 16 on a request to check his welfare. During the check, the officers became concerned that he was a threat to himself. 

Niccloy was taken into custody after a struggle and a taser was deployed to help subdue him.

Following arraignment, Niccloy was jailed on $10,000 bail.

Deputies and troopers assisted at the scene.

What makes you think he needs help? The police "believe" people are a threat to themselves if they won't open the door and talk face to face. Maybe he didn't want to talk and they just wouldn't leave.

Alvin, police responded to his residence on a REQUEST, that would most likely be the key that he needed help, at least in the eyes of whomever called police to check on him.
If you feel the need to berate the police, at least do so when they make questionable arrests, like the one in the story prior to this one.
I believe mental health law dictates the entire situation.

If he is innocent till proven guilty why is the bail so high? That's backwards you are guilty till proven innocent
