Charges have been filed against a Newtown man who police say threatened to shoot his former employer with a gun.
Mason Police have filed aggravated menacing charges against William J. Lane, 28, in Mason Municipal Court.
Police say that on Friday, Lane called Joel Presar, the general manager and vice president of Interstate Contractors, a Mason company specializing in roofing, siding and sheet metal.
Lane, an ex-employee of the company, and Presar argued about payment Lane says the company owes him for installation work, according to the police report.
Presar told police he refused Lane his final check, due to work that needed to be redone by the company. Lane then allegedly told Presar twice that he would come to the office at 762 Reading Road with his gun and shoot him, and also threatened bodily damage.
Police contacted Lane and asked him to come to the police station to discuss the incident. Lane told police he would come in to the station on Saturday, but did not show, according to police records.
