A man appeared in court Monday after police said he fired a gun during an argument with his wife in Ewa Beach.
Fredrick Smith, 45, of Ewa Beach, was charged with first-degree terroristic threatening and first-degree reckless endangering. His bail was set at $20,000. He appeared for a probable cause hearing in Honolulu District Court on Monday and his case was committed to Circuit Court.
Smith’s wife, 48, told police she was arguing with her husband over a number in his phone when he said, “I got something for you,” and went to get a gun, according to a police affidavit filed in District Court. Smith pointed the gun at his wife before she ran downstairs, and he fired the gun at the wall, the affidavit said.
Smith’s wife grabbed her daughter and went to the house of an officer, who detained her husband until uniformed patrol arrived.
The woman told police her husband did not shoot the gun at her or in her direction.
The incident happened near Pohahawai Street about 2:35 p.m. Nov. 14.
