Police: Television volume leads to threat with shotgun
PELHAM - Police said an argument over the TV volume led to an arrest of a man.
Around midnight Sunday, police responded to Hobbs Road for reports of a man with a gun.
Police said Adam Myjer, 23, pointed a gun at a family member because he was upset over the volume on a TV in a neighboring apartment.
Myjer had apparently made attempts to kick in a door to the victim's apartment through a common area in the three unit home, police said.
The victim, his girlfriend and their 1-year-old child went to check out the commotion near the door when they were met by Myjer, police said.
Myjer was holding a 12-gauge Remington 870 shotgun when the alleged victims opened the door, police said. He then "racked" a round into the chamber and threatened to shoot someone in the face if the television volume wasn't turned down, police said.
Police charged Myjer with criminal threatening with a deadly weapon and felony level reckless conduct. He was not armed when police took him into custody. Police said he had placed his shotgun in his vehicle before they arrived.
Myjer is being held on $10,000 cash bail after being arraigned Monday morning at Salem district court.
He is next scheduled to appear in court March 19.
