Danbury Police Capt. Thomas Wendel said a bails bondsman brought Brendan Kravarik, 22, of Coal Pit Hill Road, into the at about 10:20 p.m. Tuesday, but that was just the beginning of Kravarik's troubles.
The bondsman turned Kravarik in on a warrant charging Kravarik with third-degree assault, criminal mischief, threatening and second-degree strangulation. Police held him on a $25,000 bond. Police started to process Kravarik, and they found five more warrants outstanding.
Kravarik's problems increased at his arraignment in Danbury Superior Court, when he asked to speak.
Judge Susan Reynolds urged him to say nothing, and his Public Defender Rory Chapdelaine asked him to remain quiet.
You asked me this morning to appoint a public defender for you, and now you're ignoring her advice, Judge Reynolds said.
Kravarik spoke softly for a few seconds, and Judge Reynolds said, you just incriminated yourself, which I warned you against.
The assistant state's attorney then asked the court for a transcript. Kravarik spoke too softly for people in the audience to hear.
Kravarik was then held on a $60,000 bond, $10,000 each for six case files.
