A Cooperstown police officer, Otsego County deputies and state troopers responded to the scene, the release said. A Cooperstown officer made contact with Canfield, who was taken into custody.
Canfield was charged with criminal possession of a firearm, a class E felony. He was issued an appearance ticket.
