Correction 7/31, 10:04 a.m.: An earlier version of this post incorrectly stated the degree of the weapons charge filed against Joseph Snyder. He faces one count of fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon, a misdemeanor, state police say, not felony third-degree.

ROOT - A Sprakers man pointed a rifle at horses during a domestic dispute this past Friday and did so with a gun he was not legally allowed to own, state police said.

He is also accused of doing so with a child present, state police said.

Joseph Snyder, 32, of Sprakers, was charged with one count of fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon and endangering the welfare of a child, both misdemeanors, state police said.

Snyder is accused of pointing the rifle at the horses last Friday evening and threatening to harm them, as well as making the threats in front of the child. 

He was charged with the weapons count after troopers determined he is not legally allowed to own any firearms, state police said.

Snyder was arraigned and released to return to court later.
