A Hampton man allegedly threatened to use his gun in a domestic dispute with a woman in his apartment over the weekend, according to Hampton police.
Sean Meola, 49, of Hampton, was arrested Sunday by police after an alleged dispute between Meola and a woman in his apartment, according to a press release.

Meola was charged with two counts of domestic violence stemming from alleged ongoing incidents that occurred Friday and Saturday, police said.
After learning of the dispute, police said, an investigation revealed evidence that supported probable cause that the woman had been the victim of alleged domestic simple assault on Friday.
