Man held in gun threat case


Beares said his client has been doing well on probation, holding down a job busing tables at Tavern in the Square and supporting his girlfriend and their daughter.

He said his client could afford no more than $300 bail.

Judge Matthew Machera granted both Prosniewski’s request for $2,500 bail and the probation officer’s request to hold Fernandez in custody until a probation violation hearing.

That’s when Fernandez lost his cool.

He continued to yell at court officers from a holding cell just outside the courtroom, a tirade that could be heard through the closed steel door.

He’s due back in court on March 21.
