Nasie Ferderer, 48, of New York, New York, was charged with making terroristic threats, aggravated assault and hindering apprehension, according to Police Det. Lt. Edgardo Cruz
Yesterday at around 9:39 a.m., Officer Ryan Houghton received a call of a man refusing to leave the McDonald’s located at 234 Washington St., officials said.
Houghton walked into McDonald’s and noticed Ferderer acting in a disturbing manner, throwing his hands up in the air and speaking to himself. As a result, he was asked to leave the establishment, but he refused to do while continuing his behavior, authorities said.
Despite this fact, Houghton attempted to remove the defendant in a safe manner several times, but to no avail, police said.
The defendant made threats to kill and assault the officer if he attempted to remove him, which point Houghton requested the man’s identification – which he refused to provide as he finally attempted to walk away, officials said.
As Houghton attempted to stop the defendant, Federer swung his elbow in an attempt to strike the officer. Eventually, Houghton was able to subdue the defendant and safely place him under arrest, authorities said.
He was transported to headquarters for processing, where he provided a false name to police, leading to the the additional charge of hindering.
