Sex-Offender Argument Leads to Gun Charges

Windsor Police say Robert Causey allegedly pulled a gun on a man after arguing about his sex-offender status.

Windsor Police recently apprehended Windsor resident Robert Causey, 62, after he allegedly pulled a gun on a man in the heat of an argument over his sex-offender status.

According to police, Causey arrived to see friends at 41 Chestnut Drive in Windsor, but was told to leave because of his sex-offender status and after “being disrespectful by saying rude comments about sex.”

Causey was convicted of risk of injury to a child in 2006 and given a suspended sentence of seven years in jail and five years of probation.

According to the incident report, Causey left the home and returned with a .38 calibur Colt revolver.

One of the residents of the home then elbowed Causey in the face and took control of the handgun, according to the incident report. No shots were fired.

Police, the incident report describes, arrived on the scene to find Causey bloodied and intoxicated. Everyone in the home at the time of the altercation was intoxicated, police said.

Through running the serial number of the firearm and checking Causey’s background, police found that the Hickory Drive resident is lost his right to own a gun when convicted in 2006 and the gun was registered to his deceased father.

Causey was taken into custody and charged with criminal possession of a firearm, carrying a pistol without a permit, carrying a firearm under the influence of alcohol, breach of peace, second-degree threatening, first-degree reckless endangerment and interfering with an officer.

Causey was issued a $50,000 bond. He has posted bond. He is due to appear in court again on December 14.
