Following an investigation, Scott R. Ielfield, of Lowville, was arrested and charged with four class “A” misdemeanors, including two counts of second-degree menacing - weapon and two counts of criminal possession of a weapon.
Turns out, Mr. Ielfield pointed and brandished a black Daisy Co2 BB handgun at two women. He threatened to shoot them, which made the women fear for their lives as they thought the weapon was a real firearm at the time.
