Bristol Police

A man whom police say threatened to blow up Bristol City Hall on Monday is now facing charges.

They say 51-year-old Robert Daprile of Stamford became upset because a lien had been placed on property he owns on Rockwell Avenue.

Police say the lien was the result of blight issues on the property.

Daprile allegedly said he would place a bomb in City Hall and blow up the building.

He was subsequently arrested and processed in Bristol on charges of threatening and breach of peace.

Daprile is being held on $40,000 bond.
