COAL TOWNSHIP — A Coal Township man has been charged with pointing an unloaded handgun at his neighbor during an argument over loud music Saturday afternoon.

Alejandro Rey, 31, of 1116 W. Walnut St., was arraigned by video at 10:30 a.m. Thursday by Magisterial District Judge John Gembic III on misdemeanors of terroristic threats, possessing an instrument of crime and simple assault, and a summary of disorderly conduct involving the 1:12 p.m. disturbance.

Wait, Oster uninvited, goes on to Rey’s property, as in trespassing. Oster states he’s going to assault Rey. Rey pulls out his gun in defense of his property and life, while on his property...and Rey is charged with a crime??. Sounds wrong to me. Is this a race thing? Is Alejandro Hispanic? Is Christopher white? I hope that’s not what happened.
