Deerpark – Town police arrested a man last night after they say he wielded a chain saw during a dispute with his wife.
Julio Rivera, 44, of Port Jervis, also had access to a shotgun, police said, though he never pointed it at them. Calls about a man with a chain saw barricaded in a home brought law enforcement in force shortly after 8 p.m.
Town police, state police and sheriff’s deputies all responded and had the incident under control quickly.
Rivera was arrested without anyone getting hurt. Town police were still interviewing him late last night, but said Rivera would initially face a charge of harassment in the dispute.
