A Yardley man has been arrested and charged with reckless endangerment, simple assault and related offenses for pulling a gun and cocking it in a domestic incident Thursday night.
John Feeney, 23, was jailed early Friday morning connected to a domestic incident that went out of control, according to court documents.
Lower Makefield Police were called to 3107 Danbury Court around 9 p.m. for a report of physical confrontation between two brothers, and a woman involving a loaded gun police say in court records.
Lower Makefield officers interviewed two victims who told authorities, Feeney, was in the midst of a physical fight with his brother that resulted in victim number two, a woman getting in between the family members to try and stop the altercation.
Feeney, court documents allege, picked up an ottoman threatening to throw it at the woman, who in turn displayed a can of pepper spray, saying she would spray him if he threw the ottoman at her. “F**k this, I’m getting my gun,” Feeney said, which resulted in the woman leaving the residence, and the suspect retrieving his handgun from his bedroom, police said.
Feeney, according to police, cocked the gun and said “don’t f**k with me,” resulting in his family member locking himself in another room to call 911, and remaining there until police arrived on scene.
Police, a short while later, contacted Feeney by phone, who subsequently turned himself in at police headquarters.
Feeney was arraigned by On-Call Justice Frank W. Peranteau Sr. at 4:30 this morning and sent to Bucks County Correctional in lieu of 10 percent of $30,000 bail.
He is scheduled to appear in Morrisville District Court on April 21.
