Police: Teen drew rifle during incident

NORTHVILLE- A village man was charged by state police Sunday after he allegedly threatened a person with a hunting rifle at his home.

Bradley VanNostrand, 18, of Northville, was charged with second-degree menacing and second-degree harassment.

According to state police spokesman Mark Ceipel, VanNostrand was charged after a domestic incident on Second Street in the village.

Ceipel said during the incident, VanNostrand allegedly pulled out a hunting rifle and worked the action on the weapon before going to another room and acquiring ammunition. Ceipel said VanNostrand threatened an occupant of the house with the rifle, but did not aim the rifle at the person.

The occupant of the home went to the neighbors and called 911, Ceipel said.

VanNostrand was disarmed and detained without incident, Ceipel said.

VanNostrand was arraigned in Northampton Town Court and sent to Fulton County Correctional Facility in lieu of $1,000 cash bail or $2,000 bond.
