CHESTER, Vt. -

A Chester man is facing charges after he allegedly tried to confront the town's police chief with a loaded gun.

Damien Diette, 31, appeared in court Monday in a wheelchair following his fight with police.

They say on Friday, Chief Richard Cloud went to Diette's house after he allegedly made threatening calls to a woman. The chief says during the exchange, Diette reached for a loaded AK-47 before he was tackled by officers and disarmed.

Diette denied charges of reckless endangerment and resisting arrest, among others.
