Charged with police threats, Lee man waives arraignment
Steve Amazeen, 46, is now under the care and supervision of his brother, Shawn Amazeen, in Deerfield as a condition of his bail.
Bail was set Feb. 8 at $10,000 cash or corporate surety, which was posted, according to court records.
Amazeen is also being monitored by community corrections with a GPS device and is not allowed to leave the 13 Coffee Town Road address without his brother or a third-party designee approved by community corrections.
Amazeen was also ordered to have a mental health referral, refrain from the use of any alcohol or other drugs and is not to have any contact with any members of the Durham Police Department, which was involved in the case.
Numerous agencies responded to Steve Amazeen's home on Lee Hook Road on Dec. 3 just after midnight when his wife reported that he had fired a gun in their home and was possibly suicidal.
Officers encountered Amazeen on the road outside his home where he allegedly waved a handgun in front of at least seven uniformed officers, pointed it at least two officers and made threatening statements, according to court records.
Amazeen was shot by police during the incident and transported to Wentworth-Douglass Hospital, where he underwent surgery.
A report from the Attorney General's Office and the state police Major Crime Unit pertaining to the officer-involved shooting has not yet been released.
Amazeen was indicted by a Strafford County Superior Court grand jury earlier this month on eight counts of criminal threatening and eight counts of reckless conduct.
