A New Milford man was charged with threatening in the second degree and taking a motor vehicle without the owners permission following a domestic incident with his ex-girlfriend, who lives on Old Belden Hill Road.
According to , on Wednesday, Aug. 22, David Waller, 32, was told by his ex-girlfriend to leave her vehicle—which she'd previously let him use for about a month, police said—behind at her residence. Waller refused, driving over the grass and onto the roadway.
Police said that Waller then told his ex-girlfriend via telephone he would be back with a baseball bat and would kill her animals.
Police then contacted Waller, who surrendered the vehicle and himself at police headquarters shortly thereafter.
Waller was held on $1,000 bond.
