Police: Man threatened, clucked at kids

Police in Pennsylvania said they arrested a man who allegedly used a gun to threaten a group of children while clucking like a chicken.

Investigators said Gerald Wiernusz, 41, of Kingston, was apparently drunk when he confronted a group of kids playing basketball and threatened to shoot them if they came onto his property, WNEP-TV, Moosic, Pa., reported Friday.

The suspect then clucked like a chicken at the children, police said.

Wiernusz was arrested and charged with assault and making terroristic threats. He was taken to the Luzerne County Jail.
