PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Judge William Rota found Timothy Tatro, 40, of Pittsfield, guilty of single counts of assault with a dangerous weapon and violating an abuse prevention order and sentenced Tatro to serve a total of five years of incarceration.
 
On Wednesday, Judge Rota sentenced Tatro to serve two and a half years at the Berkshire County House of Correction on the assault with a dangerous weapon and two and a half years on the violation of an abuse prevention order afterward.
 
On Wednesday, March 23, 2022, Cheshire Police and Massachusetts State Police attempted to serve Tatro a restraining order at a Pine Valley Trailer Park address. After attempting to enter, Massachusetts State Police discovered Tatro pointing a crossbow at them and refusing to vacate the residence.
 
Officers from the Massachusetts State Police Cheshire Barracks, State Police Tactical Unit, State Police K9 Unit, and State Police Crisis Negotiation Unit responded to assist. After nearly six hours of negotiation, the State Police Tactical Unit entered the residence and brought Tatro into custody.
