Few things are more frustrating than a computer that won’t work right. However, a man in Arlington has been accused of going to an undesirable extreme to get computer problems remedied.

Police said that on Monday morning a man refused to let a computer technician leave a home in the 2700 block of S. Grove Street “until his computer was fixed.”

Police said the man “allegedly had a gun in his possession.”

They said Tuesday that Joseph Nestor Mondello, 50, of Arlington, was arrested and charged with abduction. The nature of the computer problem could not be learned immediately.
