A northern New Jersey man is accused of using a gun to threaten his neighbor for supposedly farting outside his apartment, police said.

Teaneck police arrested Daniel Collins Jr., 72, for allegedly pointing a .32-caliber Taurus revolver at his neighbor and telling him "I'm going to put a hole in your head," according to Detective Lt. Andrew McGurr.

Collins was angry because he supposedly heard the neighbor pass gas outside his door, McGurr said. The two men have an ongoing dispute about noise.

Police charged Collins with aggravated assault, unlawful possession of a firearm, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, and terroristic threats.

    Robert De Niro says Tribeca Film Festival is his passion

    Robert De Niro is a family man, a filmmaker, an entrepreneur and one of my favorite actors of all time. He's also a co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival, which has more to see than ever before. De Niro wears just as many hats on screen as he does in real life. The father of six starred in six films last year, owns four restaurants and a hotel, and still finds time each spring for the Tribeca Film Festival, Lower Manhattan's annual cinematic showcase.
