Man made threats in bar, police say
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.
