Daniel Collins Jr has been arrested and charged because he threatened his neighbor with a gun. The unbelievable part of the story is that he threatened his neighbor with a gun because his neighbor passed gas by his door, outside his apartment.
The 72 year old is said to have told his neighbor that he would put a hole in his head and the neighbor must have taken him seriously because he called the police. Collins is reported to have been in an ongoing dispute with his neighbor and the dispute escalated when his neighbor passed gas right outside the door of his apartment in Teaneck, NJ.
The two men had been making noise complaints against each other, prior to the incident.
According to the Daily Mail, “Teaneck police arrested and charged Daniel Collins Jr. with aggravated assault, unlawful possession of a firearm, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose and terroristic threats.”
One would speculate that the charges are too severe, especially considering the Collins’ age but threatening another person with a gun is also arguably very severe.
