According to officials, Ostrowski swore at police when they arrived, then went back in to his Webster Street home. He came out a few minutes later and was arrested.

Ostrowski was released on $2,500 bond and sent to a hospital for evaluation. He’s charged with interfering with police and breach of peace.
