Man Pulls Gun At Restaurant

Long Neck – The Delaware State Police have arrested a Millsboro man after he was involved in a domestic altercation at a Long Neck restaurant early Monday evening, according to Public Information Officer, Master Corporal Gary Fournier.

justice2Fournier said that the events unfolded around 6:54 p.m. Monday November 28, 2016 when troopers were called to the Long Neck Diner located at 25935 Plaza Drive for a disorderly subject.

When troopers arrived a male subject, who was later identified as Harvey Justice, 22 of Millsboro, had already fled the scene, according to Fournier.

Fournier said that Justice was outside the diner looking around his girlfriend’s car. The female employee went outside and noticed Justice around her car and quickly returned inside when Justice forced his way into the kitchen and confronted her, said Fournier.

Justice and the female, who are in a relationship, began arguing and a physical altercation ensued between them which filtered outside the restaurant and into the parking lot.

Two other employees then came outside and observed the commotion and attempted to break them apart, when Justice allegedly pushed his 22-year-old girlfriend to the ground and pulled a gun from a holster attached to his belt, according to Fournier.

Fournier said Justice then allegedly pointed the gun at all three of them and threatened to shoot. Shortly thereafter, Justice fled the scene in his car. The female victim was slightly injured in the altercation, but did not request immediate treatment for her wounds. The other two employees were not physically injured.

Troopers and officers from Millsboro Police Department responded to Harvey Justice’s address in Millsboro where he was taken into custody without further incident. The fully loaded 9mm handgun was also located and recovered.

Justice was transported back to Troop 7 where he was charged with three counts of Aggravated Menacing, Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Felony, and Assault 2nd. He was arraigned at JP3 and committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on $5,250.00 secured bond.
