ALLEGED GUN THREAT LANDS MAN IN JAIL

• A 37-year-old man was arrested last night after deputies responded to a call from a person who said his ex-wife was being threatened with a shotgun by her boyfriend at the 2200 block of state Route 6 east of Adna. When they arrived, Rockford H. Lang told deputies he’d been home alone all night, didn’t have a girlfriend, didn’t have a gun and denied any dispute, but deputies heard a female yelling “help” from his trailer, according to the Lewis County Sheriff’s Office as related in court papers. The woman inside reportedly said Lang was upset abut her being on the phone, kicked at her and hit her in the face before grabbing what she thought was a shotgun and a box of ammunition and saying he was going to sleep in the truck and if she came out, he would kill her, according to charging documents. Deputies located two .22 caliber rifles, arrested Lang and booked him into the Lewis County Jail. He was charged today in Lewis County Superior Court with felony harassment, unlawful imprisonment and two counts of first-degree unlawful possession of a firearm. He is a convicted felon, according to prosecutors. Lang told the judge in court this afternoon it was all a big misunderstanding. The alleged victim indicated through his lawyer a similar sentiment. Judge Joely O’Rourke set his bail at $50,000 and ordered him to have no contact with the woman.
