PLAINVILLE — A local man faces charges after police said he threatened to “shoot up” the police department while he was on the phone with a social worker. 

Adam Dzilenski, 30, of 452 East St., was charged Saturday with first-degree threatening and second-degree breach of peace. 

On June 6, a social worker at Wheeler Clinic told police he called Dzilenski to schedule an appointment and Dzilenski began speaking about a recent, unrelated, arrest, according to a police report.

The social worker reported that Dzilenski said he was being treated unfairly and added "I should go shoot up the police department.” Dzilenski also made comments about beating a woman to death, the report said.

Dzilenski was arraigned in Bristol Superior Court on Monday. The judge set bond at $50,000 and continued the case to July 8.
