While in route to the Hempstead County Detention Center Vanwinkle became more and more agitated and  verbally threatened Deputy Dunham and his family stating he was going to send him and his family to hell. Vanwinkle said several times that he would remember the0 deputy’s name and would be at his house once he was not incarcerated.
Vanwinkle also said once he took the handcuffs off of him at the jail that he was going to hit him in the face, following that up by saying the deputy might die sooner than he thinks.
Upon arriving at the Hempstead County Detention Center Vanwinkle calmed down and there was no further incident. He was charged with domestic battery 2nd, aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, criminal mischief 2nd, and terroristic threatening. He is awaiting a first court appearance.
