Morgan checked Enwright’s background and discovered he was wanted on a bench warrant for not paying a court fine, Cavallaro said.
Enwright was taken to the Londonderry police station, where he became extremely uncooperative. He refused to be arrested and had to be pepper-sprayed, Cavallaro said. Enwright yelled, spit and screamed. During the incident, Enwright hit his head and needed medical attention, Cavallaro said.
He appeared to briefly lose consciousness at one point, the police affidavit said.
Enwright was taken to Parkland Medical Center in Derry, where he spit in the face of Londonderry police Officer Jason Archambault and threatened to kill him. He also threatened to kill a Derry police officer, police said.
Enwright continued to be uncooperative in court Dec. 5, briefly delaying his arraignment via video from the county jail. When the arraignment before Judge John Coughlin began, Enwright’s demeanor didn’t change and a sheriff’s deputy had to restrain him.
“Take your hands off me, take your hands off me,” he said.
Enwright leaned against his hand and closed his eyes on several occasions as the charges against him were read, growing visibly angrier.
“Your honor, I don’t understand where all these cases are coming from — these officers are purposely stacking cases,” Enwright said.
Prosecutor Scott Jordan outlined Enwright’s 20-year criminal history and numerous convictions. Those convictions include receiving stolen property, larceny and assaulting police officers.
Coughlin said a public defender would be appointed to handle Enwright’s case. A probable cause hearing is scheduled for Dec. 13. As the arraignment came to a close, Enwright’s anger didn’t dissipate.
“I should have punched that guy in the face is what I should have done,” he said, not identifying whom he intended to assault.
Enwright faces two counts of criminal threatening and single counts of robbery, simple assault, theft and resisting arrest. All are felonies, except the misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest.
He is being held for lack of $50,000 cash bail.
