Police said Taveras threatened the woman, whose identity was not released, and said he later resisted arrest -- suffering a "minor injury to his wrist" in the process. He was taken to a hospital, where he was treated for a sore wrist, police said.

Police said that, following an investigation, a search-warrant was issued -- leading police to recover "multiple rifles, a handgun and ammunition."
