MOUNT MORRIS – A Mount Morris man was arrested on Monday after a domestic dispute in which a caller apparently mistakenly reported that a gun had been fired.
According to a press release from the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office, Christopher Freas, 32, was arrested for Criminal Obstruction of Breathing, Unlawful Imprisonment, Harassment in the Second Degree, and two counts of Endangering the Welfare of a Child after Deputy Sheriffs on scene were able to make contact with him and he came out of the house without incident.
The E-911 Center had received a call of domestic dispute in progress, and several Deputy Sheriffs responded and were able to safely get the female victim and two young children away from the residence.
The investigation that followed revealed that at no time was a gun fired or even involved in the incident.
Freas was arraigned in the Town of Mount Morris Court before Justice LaPianna, where he was released on his own recognizance. Freas is scheduled to appear in the Town of Mount Morris court at a later date. An order of protection was issued by the Justice for Freas to stay away from the victim.
The investigation and arrest were handled by Deputy Tim Sweeting, assisted by Deputy Ross Gerace, Sheriff’s Investigator Dan Rittenhouse, Sergeant Chad Draper, Captain Norm Zeh and members of the State Police.
