Stephen Visconti, 57, and Pamela Visconti, 58, are a Long Island couple seem as perfect for each other as they are a nightmare for any neighborhood. It all started with a report of Stephen threatening people with a shovel. Then it got much much worse.
When two officers arrived, they found Stephen on the front patio. As they were questioning him, however, Pamela stood between them and Stephen. The officers then tried to move Pamela off the patio and Stephen threatened to throw his coffee mug at the officer. The officer then shocked him with a taser.
Stephen however pulled out the darts and threw the coffee mug at the officers’ head. In the meantime, Pamela and one of the officer were struggling and fell backward. Pamela grabbed his baton and used it to strike the officer on the head. That is when Stephen grabbed a long-handle shovel and raised it high above his head to allegedly hit the officer. When the sergeant pushed him away, the couple went into the house.
