A Fall River man who was arrested Saturday after a reported incident at an amusement business has been held without bail.

The Bristol County District Attorney’s Office requested that 32-year-old Chantra Say be held for a dangerousness hearing. The judge agreed and he is being held without bail pending the results of a dangerousness hearing.

According to New Bedford Police, at approximately 7:00 p.m., dispatch received a call regarding a man in the “Funz” trampoline park in New Bedford who was in possession of a firearm.

Officers made their way to the location and were able to locate a male suspect, later identified as Say, matching the description provided. Police stated that upon seeing police, Say attempted to hand a bag to another individual who refused to accept it. He then tossed this bag into a nearby garbage bin as he was stopped by officers Marc Felix, Henry Turgeon, and off-duty officer James Marinelli. Say resisted their efforts to place him into cuffs but was eventually secured and taken into custody. Within the bag he had discarded, was a 9mm handgun loaded with 13 rounds of ammunition.

Say is currently on probation out of Bristol Superior court for assault with intent to commit murder and possession of a firearm. These convictions stem from his involvement in a Fall River shooting that took place during the summer of 2010.

As a result of the incident, Say is charged with carrying a high-capacity firearm, possession of ammunition, and resisting arrest.

The dangerousness hearing is scheduled for March 10.
