A gun-owning man who was drinking vodka was arrested Friday night by Lower Southampton police after an argument, authorities said.
James Keeney, 53, of Trevose, was arrested at the home he shared with his wife and charged with simple assault, terroristic threats, disorderly conduct, harassment and public drunkenness.
He was arraigned and sent to Bucks County prison, where he was later released on 10 percent of $5,000 bail. As part of his release conditions, Kenney turned his handgun over to officials, agreed to not go to his home and not contact his wife, authorities said.
Police arrived to the 620 block of F Avenue in the Trevose section of the township and spoke with Kenney’s wife after officers were dispatched for a domestic.
The woman told officers her husband, who owns a Glock handgun, threaten to kill her. She also told police while she was on the phone with a social worker he began yelling and struck her in the head with a slice of pizza, while he was drinking vodka, according to a incident report.
A responding officer said Kenney was visibly intoxicated.
When speaking with officers, Kenney admitted to striking his wife with the pizza, but denied threatening to kill his wife, police said.
The woman next loaded her car with clothes and her pets and attempted to leave with police watching.
Kenney agreed with police “to behave himself.”
As patrol officers prepared to leave the home, the 53-year-old was heard yelling at his wife as she tried to leave. Kenney then jumped on the hood of her car, police said.
He was then arrested and processed.
