    Truth is…..if a man pulled a gun on someone bail would be 100k-150k–seriously and a felony charge would be issued which was not. The people in the “dispute” did NOT EVEN SAY 1 WORD to each other get the police report and report the truth! Plus they are current neighbors not EX. ED VEILLETTE has harassed many people in Shelton. I will NEVER believe the press again they print what they want to sell papers.
    FAKE NEWS to sell papers but destroy families.
