L. SAUCON TWP., Pa. | Apparently unhappy that a pizza deliveryman tried to deliver a pizza to the wrong house, a Lower Saucon Township man is facing charges he threatened the driver.
Lower Saucon Township police were dispatched to the 2000 block of Susan Lane shortly after 8:30 p.m. Oct. 4 to investigate a report that a pizza delivery driver was being threatened by a resident, according to court records.
The driver told 911 that the resident had threatened to shoot him but was unsure if he’d seen a gun.
An officer arrived to find the driver sitting in his car and a bare-chested James McManus standing his driveway with his arms crossed and his aforementioned chest sticking out, according to the criminal complaint.
The driver told police that he was making a delivery in the 2000 block of Susan Lane, when his GPS directed him to a nearby and incorrect address. When he contacted McManus, the 60-year-old allegedly began immediately yelling at him, according to the driver.
McManus allegedly repeatedly began threatening to kill and shoot the driver, according to the criminal complaint. Police arrested him on single misdemeanor counts of terroristic threats and harassment.
District Judge Richard Yetter arraigned McManus the next morning, releasing him on $5,000 unsecured bail. His next court date is a preliminary hearing scheduled for Oct. 18.
