HUDSON — A Hudson man was charged after he allegedly wielded a shotgun and threatened to shoot another person, police said.

David Weldon Lindsey, 26, was charged Saturday with second-degree menacing, a class A misdemeanor; fourth-degree possession of a weapon, a class A misdemeanor; and second-degree criminal possession of marijuana, a class D felony, according to Hudson police.

The alleged victim, who was not identified by police, went to pick up his property at Lindsey’s home on State Street just before 9 a.m., police said.

A witness called police to say he could hear people fighting and someone yelling that he was going to get a gun, police said.

Lindsey allegedly went back into his residence, returned outside with a gun, and pointed it at the alleged victim, police said.

Columbia County District Attorney Paul Czajka obtained a search warrant from Hudson City Judge John Connor for Lindsey’s home at 538 State St.

A Remington Model 870 shotgun with a shortened barrel and six pounds of marijuana were seized in the search, police said.

Lindsey was sent to the Columbia County Jail on $2,500 bail, according to police.
