A man who called a nurse to talk about a prescription for his elderly father faces charges after police said he ingested several different drugs then threatened to kill any officers who responded.

Farmington police said Peter J. Ostrowski was agitated while on the phone with the nurse on Wednesday night. They said he even advised the nurse to call police.

However, Ostrowski also advised the nurse that he'd kill any officers who came to his home on Webster Street.

Officers said they arrived and made contact with him. He shouted profanities at them then fled back into his home.

Ostrowski came out a few minutes later and was taken into custody without any other problems.

He was not in possession of any weapons, according to police.

After being processed and released on a $2,500 non-surety bond, he was sent to an area hospital for evaluation.

Ostrowski was charged with breach of peace and interfering with police.
