Public safety > LA man charged with threats made to a family member

By Tris DeRoma

Recently, police saved a suspect allegedly involved in a domestic dispute from seriously injuring himself shortly after he was taken into custody.
William R. Garrett, 30, of Los Alamos, was arrested in April for allegedly threatening a family member, shortly after he was released from the Los Alamos Detention Center for an alleged prior drug possession and drug paraphernalia possession charges, as well as various alleged motor vehicle violations.
According to court documents, Garrett, once he was released from the jail April 14, contacted a family member and told this person he wanted to see them. When the family member told him that he could not come over, Garrett allegedly became irate.
The family member told police that Garrett had said to her that he was “going to break the door down and hurt me.” Police also noted that the family member was “visibly shaking” over the encounter and that she had been crying.
Police helped the family member fill out a restraining order and left the member’s residence.
A short time later, police received a call from the same family member, who reported to police that Garrett this time allegedly “threatened to go to his car, get his gun and shoot (this person).”
