SAUGERTIES – A Town of Saugerties man who thought a Domino’s pizza deliveryman was bringing a pie that he didn’t order, has been charged by Saugerties Police with pulling a loaded gun on the driver.

Ralph Carpino, 45, of 106 Josephs Drive said he had not ordered the pizza, but it turned out that a member of his family had done so.

Carpino was arrested and charged with menacing and criminal possession of a weapon.

In compliance with the bail reform laws, he was released on a police appearance ticket returnable to town court.

The gun used in the incident, a Glock .40 caliber semi-automatic, was seized at the scene.

The investigation is continuing, and police said further charges are pending.
