COTTONWOOD – A Cottonwood man was arrested Tuesday for threatening his neighbors with a gun, according to police.

The man complained that his neighbors were playing music too loud, according to a Cottonwood Police Department news release.

Shortly after 5 p.m. Tuesday, officers were called to the 50 block of South 15th Street for a reported weapon offense, according to the release.

“The caller reported their intoxicated neighbor, 63-year-old Ronald Lewy, walked over to their house with a gun in his hand and pointed it at them stating their music was too loud,” according to the release.

Lewy returned to his residence before police arrived. When officers made contact with him, Lewy said he did go to his neighbors’ house and point his gun at them, but it wasn’t loaded and he wasn’t going to hurt anyone, the release states.

Lewy said his neighbors playing their music too loud was an ongoing issue.

Lewy was arrested and charged with one felony count of disorderly conduct involving a weapon, police said.
