A Fairfield man was arrested Sunday after he allegedly threatened his ex-girlfriend with a gun, police said.

Robert Pekar, 25, of Forest Ave, was charged with first-degree reckless endangerment, second-degree threatening, and disorderly conduct after he reportedly ripped a TV off of the wall, pointed a gun at the woman, and told her to "shut up," department spokesperson Sgt. Sue Lussier said.

Pekar left the scene of the incident and drove to Westport, where he allegedly dropped off a .45 caliber gun at his mother's residence, according to the report. Officers contacted Pekar by phone and met him at a predetermined location, where he was taken into custody by Fairfield and Westport police.

He was released after posting a $25,000 bond and was scheduled to have appeared in court on Tuesday.
