Middletown Police report the following incidents:
INTERFERING WITH OFFICER, BREACH OF PEACE, DISORDERLY CONDUCT — On June 25 at 12:06 a.m., Sebastiano Rizzo, 55, of Margarite Road was seen by police intoxicated at Main and Court streets, according to the report, after making death threats to an officer on a previous shift. He was belligerent and uncooperative, police say, screaming at a K-9, and refusing to go home. He resisted arrest and police subdued him with a kick to the midsection, the report says, but he continued acting loud in the cruiser and refused to sign his fingerprint cards.
SECOND-DEGREE FALSELY REPORTING INCIDENT — On June 24, Joseph Castro, 47, of Silver Street came into police headquarters saying a man took $10 from him for a "loose," the report says, and when he asked for change, the man threatened him with a handgun. Police determined Castro lied after being "burned" in a drug deal at Main and Grand streets. He allegedly told them he actually didn't see a gun but it was OK since he has bipolar disorder and often says things without thinking. He also made two racial comments against the accused, who the report says, hadn't stole anything.

DISORDERLY CONDUCT — On June 22, police responded to Citizens Bank on Washington Street for a man, David Micciulla, 57, of Loon Lake Road, Plymouth, N.H., driving a Mercedes C-300 sedan causing a disturbance at the drive-through window with his mother as a passenger. The report says Micciulla told them the teller refused to cash his mother's check although she was a longtime customer; and tried to leave, saying his mother needed her medication, then calling the investigation a "joke." The teller said she was trying to cash checks totaling more than $5,000 with no identification; then screamed, swore and threw things at the teller window and banged it with his fist. The report says he also gave the woman behind him in line the finger when she told him he had dropped something. When asked for his social security number, Micciulla allegedly said he was an Italian citizen and was rude to officers.
