A man from Louisiana is facing charges after he allegedly went into a New London nursing home while intoxicated and displayed a gun.
Police said they were called to the Kindred Crossings West nursing home on Monday just after 4 p.m.
They arrested Paul Bialowas, of Zacharyla, La., and charged him with possession of an assault weapon, carrying a firearm while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, possession of large capacity magazines, reckless endangerment, second-degree threatening, and second-degree breach of peace.
Police said Bialowas was found to be in possession of an unloaded Taurus "The Judge" .45 Cold/.410 gauge shot shell revolver, along with one .410-ga shot shell round.
His rental car was found a short distance away, and police found an AR-15 assault weapon, a 9mm pistol, .380 pistol assorted ammunition and large capacity ammunition magazine.
Police said he did possess a valid Connecticut pistol permit.
No injuries were reported and no shots were fired.
Bialowas was held on a $75,000 bond.
