PAWLET — A 37-year-old man was arrested on multiple charges following an incident in Pawlet on Thursday.

Police were notified of a citizen dispute at around 9:33 p.m.

During the course of the investigation, police allege that Stanley Peterson, of Pawlet, had attempted to cause serious bodily injury to two people.

Police say Peterson discharged a firearm into an air conditioner and later allegedly pointed it at one of the victims.

A statement issued by police reads he did so “recklessly under circumstances manifesting extreme indifference to the value of human life.”

Peterson was taken into custody and later held without bail.
