HARBESON — The Delaware State Police have charged Wesley J. Fagg, 32, of Milton, with multiple weapons related offenses stemming from an incident in which he pointed a handgun at a neighbor.

Police said the incident occurred at approximately 10:56 p.m., Friday at a residence located in the 18000 block of Indian Mission Road, Harbeson.

A male resident made contact with two female subjects at a neighboring residence and asked them to turn down loud music, which was being played from a vehicle parked in the driveway. As the male was talking to the females Mr. Fagg approached and pointed a handgun at him, stating “we aren’t doing this tonight.”

Responding Troopers located Mr. Fagg at the residence and took him in to custody without incident. Mr. Fagg was found to be in possession of a Springfield XD 45 handgun which was determined to be unloaded.

Mr. Fagg was transported to Troop 7 where he was arrested and charged with one count each of aggravated menacing, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and possession of a firearm while intoxicated. He was then arraigned in Justice of the Peace Court No. 3 before being committed to the Sussex Correctional Institution in lieu of $13,000 secured bail.
