SCRANTON (AP) — A northeastern Pennsylvania man has been jailed on charges he threatened a bar bouncer with a gun after the suspect “aggressively” flirted with females in his quest to have them join him and his wife for sex.

The (Scranton) Times-Tribune reported Jeremy Srebro, 34, was arrested Jan. 12 when he went to a Scranton bar with his wife after receiving news from his doctor that his liver was failing and he needed a transplant.

Police said the bouncer confronted Srebro after complaints from female patrons, and disarmed Srebro after he jabbed a loaded pistol into the bouncer’s chest.

Police said Srebro’s wife told them he was going through a rough time and not in his right mind.

Online court records don’t list a defense attorney for Srebro, who faces a Jan. 27 preliminary hearing.
