A spat between neighbors over loud music ended with one man accused of threatening the other with a fake gun this past weekend.

Deputies with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station arrested a 46-year-old Saugus man shortly after midnight Saturday on suspicion of drawing or exhibiting an imitation firearm, a misdemeanor offense.

“There was a dispute between two neighbors over loud music,” Shirley Miller, local sheriff’s spokeswoman told The Signal Tuesday.

“The suspect allegedly retrieved a gun and threatened the victim,” she said. “The handgun was later deemed to be a replica handgun made of rubber.”
