Reports indicated law enforcement officials were informed of a suspicious man at an “off-site employee parking lot” near Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass.
A search of Bromson’s car turned up weapons, including what appears to be multiple sharp edged weapons, a slingshot, meat cleaver and a taser-like device.
Police said there was no threat to Gillette Stadium.
WCVB Boston indicated that Bromson was involved in a lengthy standoff with law enforcement officials in Granby, Connecticut in 2014.
