Police drop charges against Epping man for allegedly threatening to shoot officers
EPPING - Police have dropped a felony charge against a man for allegedly threatening to shoot officers when they responded to a domestic incident at his home in February.
According to the New Hampshire Union Leader, prosecutor Heather Newell said there was not enough evidence in the criminal threatening charge against Daniel Paolini, 55, of 121 Jenness Road.
Police responded to Paolini's home on the morning of Feb. 18 after a report of domestic assault.
Police said Paolini threatened to shoot responding officers, leading to heavy police response and a perimeter set up around his residents.
Paolini faces two counts of domestic violence assault for allegedly punching his adopted daughter, Alyssa Paolini, in the back of the head and for allegedly punching Frank Potvin in the head.
He has pleaded not guilty and is free on bail.
