SPRINGWATER — A Springwater couple is charged with harassment after allegedly threatening a family with a gun. 


On Nov. 13 deputies arrested Jared Panipinto, 27 and his wife, Frankie Panipinto, 24 after they responded to an apartment building on North Street. The deputies found the suspect had left the area and worked to calm down the family that had been allegedly threatened by a gun. 


"The ensuing investigation revealed and alleges that one of the tenants of the building,Jared Panipinto, became upset over one of the other tenants using the laundry facilities," Sheriff Thomas Dougherty said. "The situation escalated to the point where Jared Panipinto went to his apartment and retrieved a long gun. Jared Panipinto then pointed the gun directly at the other tenant, his 16- year-old son, and 17- year-old nephew. Jared's wife, Frankie Panipinto, also got involved and during the course of the dispute, slapped the 17- year- old boy in the face."


Members of the Sheriff's Office executed a search warrant on the Panipinto's apartment and recovered the long gun in question.


The Panipintos were later located by deputies and they were both arrested on numerous charges.


Jared Panipinto was charged with four counts of second-degree reckless endangerment, three counts of second-degree menacing, and one count of endangering the welfare of a child.


Frankie Panipinto was charged with one count of endangering the welfare of a child and one count of second-degree harassment.


The Panipinto’s were turned over to Central Booking Deputies at the Livingston County Jail for processing and pre-arraignment detention.


The Panipinto’s were both arraigned on Nov. 14 in Conesus Town Court before Justice Mahoney. The Judge did set bail on Jared Panipinto at $500 cash or $1,000 bond. The Judge did release Frankie Panipinto on her own recognizance (ROR). An order of protection was issued to protect the victim family.
