Putnam County Sheriff Robert L. Langley, Jr. reports the arrest of a Danbury man for Criminal Possession of a Weapon, Driving While Intoxicated, and Unlawful Possession of Marijuana.
On March 18, 2019, at approximately 12:40 p.m., Sergeant William Quick observed an erratically driven vehicle commit traffic violations on Route 301, in the Town of Carmel. Sergeant Quick initiated a traffic stop of the vehicle. Upon approaching the vehicle, Sergeant Quick observed a strong odor of alcohol and marijuana emanating from the vehicle. A subsequent investigation by Sergeant Quick revealed that the vehicle’s driver, Nickolai Plastini, age 31, of Danbury, was allegedly intoxicated and in possession of marijuana. The investigation also revealed that Mr. Plastini was in possession of a .410 Gauge Shotgun, .410 Gauge Shotgun Shells, and a notebook appearing to be a “manifesto” by Plastini of his intent to kill people and the reasons why. The notebook contained a list of people’s names that had apparently “wronged” Plastini.
Mr. Plastini was placed under arrest and charged with Criminal Possession of a Weapon, Driving While Intoxicated, Aggravated Unlicensed Operation of a Motor Vehicle in the Third Degree and Unlawful Possession of Marijuana.
He was arraigned in the Town of Patterson Justice Court, on behalf of the Town of Carmel Justice Court and remanded to the Putnam County Correctional Facility in lieu of $10,000.00 cash-bail/ $20,000.00 bail-bond.
The individuals listed in the notebook were contacted by members of the Sheriff’s Department and advised of the “Manifesto”. Plastini who previously resided in Carmel with his parents now resides in Danbury Connecticut. Mr. Plastini posted bail and is scheduled to be in the Town of Carmel Justice Court on April 23, 2019.
