An Extreme Risk Protection order was issued
An Extreme Risk Protection order was issued by the court last week prohibiting an East Hardwick man from possessing firearms for two years.
Michael Edward McCuen has now been accused of assaulting a pregnant woman and was taken into custody by the Vermont State Police Tactical Services Unit at his home early Tuesday morning.
McCuen, who may have mental health issues, is now being held without bail and subject to a court-ordered mental health evaluation.
Police said McCuen had three guns in his possession – a shotgun, a muzzleloader and a handgun which have now been confiscated by Hardwick Police.
