Published DateLACONIA — A Goffstown man is accused of threatening the head of security at the Broken Spoke Saloon Tuesday night after bouncers asked him to leave the premisis.
Police affidavits and complaints said Timothy Bailey, 36, of 14 Water Road, Goffstown took the substantial step of first degree assault by cupping a metal knife in his hand and saying "so he is the one I'm going to (explicative) up."
Bailey is also charged with one count of being a felon in possession of a dangerous weapon and one count of criminal threatening.
Police affidavits also stated security staff also said Dailey threatened to stab everyone else in the bar. Security was able to subdue him until police arrived.
Arresting Officer Kevin Butler said Bailey refused to tell police his name or sign any paperwork saying only to call his lawyer and his lawyer would know who he was.
Once at the Belknap County House of Corrections, police identified him by credit cards in his wallet.
In the 4th Circuit Court, Laconia Division Bailey, who appeared by video, was polite and subdued. Two of his friends and-or family one of whom was wearing a Hells Angels T-shirt that was turned inside out watched the appearance.
After Laconia Prosecutor Jim Sawyer asked for $25,000 cash bail because of the seriousness of the offence and Bailey's 23 prior convictions for a variety of things including multiple charges of driving after being deemed a habitual offender, Public Defender Kate Geraci said $10,000 cash was going to be difficult for Bailey to raise. She said he owns a drywall company in Goffstown and needed to get home to pick up his 7-year-old daughter from school.
She said he had only come to Laconia for the day and had never failed to appear in court.
Carroll order bail set at $15,000 cash only and said if Bailey posted it, one of the conditions of his bail is that he not come to Laconia or the Weirs unless on court business.
Bailey posted the $15,000 cash bail.
