Derry man charged in Nashua gun incidents


JOSEPH BLUMENTHAL 

NASHUA — A Derry man is accused of getting drunk on two different occasions and pointing loaded guns at two different people inside the same Cottage Avenue residence.

Joseph Blumenthal, 26, of 86 Blueberry Hill Road, was arrested Monday night by Nashua police and charged with two counts of reckless conduct, both class B felonies.

Police said they were called at 9 p.m. Monday for a report that Blumenthal had pointed a rifle at a 44-year-old man inside the Cottage Avenue home. Arriving officers discovered an intoxicated Blumenthal with a loaded firearm during an argument and arrested him.

While investigating that incident, police learned of an earlier incident two months ago when an intoxicated Blumenthal allegedly pointed a different firearm at a 32-year-old woman while inside the same residence. As a result, he was charged with the second count of reckless conduct.

Police recovered two guns.

Blumenthal is being held at the police station on $10,000 cash/surety bail pending arraignment Tuesday in 9th Circuit Court, Nashua District Division.
