The New York City Police Department filed multiple criminal cases against an armed man who causes a standoff with police officers outside the UN headquarters on East River on Thursday.
The NYPD sued William Tingler, 65, of Ormand Beach, Fla. for criminal possession of a weapon, making terroristic threats, menacing, reckless endangerment, and obstruction.
The police said after a three-hour standoff the suspect who was carrying a shotgun decided to surrender.
Upon his surrender, the suspect gave a stack of papers to NYPD to be given to someone in the United Nations to review.
The NYPD for its part vowed to give the documents to the UN personnel.
A deeper investigation of the incident is now underway.
