Police: Mechanic threatened co-workers with gun
FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) - (WPVI) -- A mechanic who thought migrant workers at a southern New Jersey farm were playing their music too loud was charged with aggravated assault after he allegedly pointed a loaded gun at the group.
Thirty-six-year-old Robert Pagliarini of Newfield also faces charges of making terroristic threats and numerous weapons offenses stemming from this week's dispute at the Franklin Township farm.
The Gloucester County Times reports that Pagliarini reportedly pointed a revolver at several workers and said he was going to kill them. He then allegedly raised his arm upward and fired the weapon into the air.
Authorities say no one was struck by bullet or injured in the dispute.
Pagliarini's bail was set at $100,000 cash, and it was not known Saturday if he had retained a lawyer.
