Saugerties police said in a news release that they arrested Ralph Carpino III for pointing a loaded handgun at the delivery driver. Carpino had said that he didn’t order a pizza, but detectives determined another member of the family had ordered pizza to be delivered to the house.

Police seized the gun, a Glock .40 Cal Semi-Automatic handgun, at the scene, WTEN reported.

Saugerties police chief Joseph Sinagra told the Daily Freeman that Carpino is a corrections officer. State officials declined to comment on Carpino’s employment, but the Daily Freeman found employment records showing Carpino as an employee of the Ulster Correctional Facility, a medium-security facility for men.

Carpino was charged with second-degree menacing and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon, Sinagra told the Register-Star. If found guilty, Carpino could face up to a year in jail and a fine of up to $1,000.
