SOUTHINGTON – A Southington man was arrested earlier this month for an alleged domestic dispute in a car that involved a threat.

David Badgley, 29, of 450 West St., was arrested on April 11 by warrant and charged with two counts of second-degree threatening, second-degree breach of peace and third-degree assault.

According to Southington police, Badgley and victim one were passengers of a car that victim two was driving. The three were driving home, Lt. Stephen Elliot said, but were unsure of where they were coming from.

Badgley allegedly injured the arm of victim one by pulling it back and threatening to kill both of the victims.

Badgley was dropped off at his home by the victims, and then allegedly continued to threaten to kill them via text messaging.

Badgley is due in Bristol Superior Court on April 30. He is released from custody on a promise to appear.
