New Castle- The Delaware State Police have arrested 53-year-old David McIntosh for aggravated menacing and related charges, according to Public Information Officer, Master Corporal Melissa Jaffe.

Jaffe said the incident occurred on May 16, 2020, at approximately 11:15 a.m., when Troopers were dispatched to the Hollywood Motel, located at 145 S. Dupont Hwy, New Castle, for a report of a domestic.
