    A Long Island homeowner angry about snow being pushed onto his property threatened to shoot a pair of snow plow operators Monday, police say.

    The man was charged with possession of a dangerous weapon and two counts of second-degree menacing after the confrontation in a private parking lot in Manorhaven, Nassau County police say.

    The homeowner walked up with a shotgun in hand as the plow operators were clearing snow, police say, and allegedly threatened to shoot them and the truck. Then, he cocked the weapon and headed back to his home.

    Afterward, the plow operators called police and the homeowner was taken into custody and arraigned Tuesday.
