MILTON, Del.- Delaware State Police have arrested a Milton man accused of making repeated 911 calls to threaten a police officer.

Thirty-three-year-old Chad A. Tylecki was taken into custody on Thursday. Police say Tylecki called 911 repeatedly and threatened to hurt a Lewes police officer for a past incident.

Troopers said they went to a home on the 15000 block of Coastal Highway at 10:18 p.m. Thursday and told Tylecki to stop, after he had made three calls in a 10 minute period to the Sussex County Emergency Operations Center. Police said the warning was ineffective, and that Tylecki continued to make threatening calls to 911 and the Lewes Police Department. 

Troopers then returned to the home for a second time, and found Tylecki on the roof of the home.

Delaware State Police say the investigation showed that while Tylecki made phone calls to the dispatch center, he was armed with a fully loaded 9mm handgun.

Police said Tylecki's father went up to the roof to talk to his son, and Tylecki eventually threw the gun to the ground.

Police said that after a brief struggle, troopers took Tylecki into custody with the help of his father.

Tylecki is prohibited from possessing, purchasing, or owning a gun as result of a 2006 committal to a state mental hospital, according to police.

He is charged with malicious interference with emergency communications, possession of a firearm by a person prohibited, possession of ammunition by a person prohibited, resisting arrest and criminal mischief.

Tylecki is being held in lieu of $6,750 cash bond.
