San Carlos bar patron charged in SWAT standoff
February 19, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Paul McNerney

A San Carlos man who forced a standoff with SWAT officers after locking himself inside a bar over the weekend and refusing to leave is a second-striker awaiting trial on unrelated charges.

Paul McNerney, 42, reportedly locked himself inside Sodini’s Bar at 727 El Camino Real around 10:50 a.m. and told the owner to call SWAT if she wanted him gone. The owner did just that and Redwood City police closed the 700 block of El Camino Real in both directions while negotiating his exit. Officers finally entered the bar just before 3 p.m. to remove McNerney and reported he appeared under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Although causing a police standoff is itself not a crime, McNerney was charged Tuesday with a misdemeanor count of resisting arrest and interfering with a peace officer. He was ordered back to court Feb. 19 to set a preliminary hearing and also returns Wednesday morning for a hearing to surrender his $40,000 bail bond in an earlier case.

At the time of his most recent arrest, McNerney was awaiting an April 1 jury trial on two felony counts of carrying a dirk or dagger on Oct. 19, 2013. McNerney also has two prior strikes on his criminal record from four previous prison commitments. Neither the October nor this recent case can count as strikes if he is convicted because they are not considered violent or serious.

McNerney remains in custody.
