Grahmsville man arrested for menacing with a shotgun

A 40-year-old Grahmsville man was arrested Sunday after pointing a shotgun at a woman and her five-year-old daughter following an unfavorable ending to a Nascar race, police said. 

Scott Hynson was arrested by New York State Police at Liberty after they responded to reports of a man with a gun. Police said the investigation found that Hynson pointed a loaded Mossberg 12 gauge shotgun at a woman and her five-year-old daughter threatening to kill them.

“He [Hynson] was upset and yelling due to losing a Nascar race and financial troubles,” Public Information Officer at New York State Police Troop F, Trooper Steven Nevel, said.

Hynson was charged with misdemeanors of menacing in the second degree, criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth degree and endangering the welfare of a child.

He was arraigned at the Town of Neversink Court and remanded to Sullivan County Jail instead of the $10,000 cash bail.
