ITHACA, N.Y. -- An Ithaca man was arrested after several hours of negotiations with police.
Officials say they were called to the home on East State Street for a domestic incident early Saturday morning. When they arrived, Ricardo Williams, 33, allegedly threatened to stab anyone who came near him.
Officials say they could hear Williams throwing stuff around the apartment and yelling and making threats. Williams then opened the door and police were able to see he was holding a large butcher style knife and officials say he was pointing it at police. At that time, police tried to tase Williams, but he went back into the apartment and barricaded himself inside. At that time members of the SWAT team entered into the apartment and arrested him.
Williams is being charged with menacing.
