The Sunnyside Gardens man who was arrested Wednesday for the possession of a bevy of drugs and firearms also faces a number of domestic violence charges that stem back to 2012.
Daniel Tone, who was arrested at 5:00 am Wednesday, allegedly tried to choke his wife inside their 39-14 44th Street home in August 2012 by “putting his hands around her neck and applying pressure,” according to charges.
Daniel Tone, when he committed the alleged offense, violated an order of protection, according to the charges. He also faces a second-degree harassment charge stemming from that incident.
These charges have been added to the litany of others that were filed dealing with drugs and guns.
Tone was arraigned yesterday and was ordered to be held on $50,000. He is currently in Rikers Island.
His attorney, Mahmoud Rabah, said that Tone has plead not guilty and will be fighting the charges. He said Tone will probably make bail some time soon.
According to the police, Tone kept his bevy of guns in the basement and grew his marijuana plants in an upstairs bedroom.
Tone’s next court date is scheduled for April 16.
