City Councilman Alfredo Castillo turned himself into police on Thursday charged with a misdemeanor threat against Public Facilities Director Craig Nadrizny over maintenance work at the Wonderland of Ice skating rinks.
On Aug. 3 Castillo got in the face of Nadrizny screaming about the maintenance of exterior doors at the venue. The department head notified Castillo that per its lease with the city, Wonderland management is responsible for maintenance.
According to Nadrizny’s police complaint, Castillo subsequently “stood in front of” him as he tried to climb back into his vehicle to leave, “pumping his chest” and threatening, “I’m going to kick your a** and don’t make me go street on you!”
The facility is located in Castillo’s 136th District.
One of Castillo’s primary opponents Carmen Nieves has also filed a harassment complaint against him asserting he body shamed her last week at the Margaret Morton Government Center on Broad Street.
