A US pensioner has been arrested for threatening to shoot a neighbour for breaking wind outside of his home.
Daniel Collins Junior, 72, of Teaneck, New Jersey, is accused of pointing a silver revolver at his 47-year-old neighbour.
Police say the confrontation came in the lobby of their apartment building after the neigbbour “farted” as he walked by Collins’ door.
Detective Lt. Andrew McGurr said Collins told the flatulent man: “I’m going to put a hole in your head.”
Collins told detectives he heard the un-neighbourly act from inside his apartment, reports the Bergen Record.
The neighbour called police, who found a revolver under the front passenger seat of Collins’ vehicle.
Collins was charged with aggravated assault, unlawful possession of a firearm, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose and terroristic threats.
