New Jersey Man Allegedly Pulled Gun on Neighbor Who Farted in His General DirectionS

A 72-year-old Teaneck, New Jersey resident was taken into custody by police last night after he reportedly aimed a gun at a neighbor who farted outside his door.

Daniel Collins and the unidentified victim, 47, live in the same apartment complex, and had apparently been feuding for "some time" over "noise complaints" prior to yesterday's incident.

According to Det. Lt. Andrew McGurr, Collins snapped and pulled out a handgun after "hearing [his neighbor] pass gas in front of his apartment door." He denied brandishing a weapon, but upon searching his vehicle, police officers uncovered a .32-caliber Taurus revolver under the front passenger seat.

Collins was subsequently charged with aggravated assault, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, unlawful possession of a firearm and making terroristic threats.
