Milton – The Delaware State Police have charged 25-year-old, Kaleb R. Lemaire of Milton, with multiple weapons-related offenses, stemming from a domestic incident that occurred late Saturday night, according to Public Information Officer, Master Corporal Michael Austin.

Austin said on Saturday, August 24, 2019, at approximately 11:29 p.m., Troopers responded to a residence located in the 100 block of Bangor Lane in Milton for the report of a male subject threatening a female with a handgun. Troopers learned that Lemaire had been involved in a verbal altercation with his girlfriend while at the residence, and during the incident pointed a handgun at her and threatened to shoot her, according to Austin.
