Fifty-one-year-old Rock Aurelien was arraigned on charges of three counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and three counts of armed assault with intention to murder.

Auerlien will also have to wear a GPS monitoring device pending a release on a bail. He is not permitted to communicate with the mother of the children or the kids themselves while officials investigate the incident.
