According to the arrest affidavit, the proverbial shit hit the fan soon after Presutti accused his wife of having an affair. At one point during the heated argument, Presutti reportedly yelled, “I want to kill you and the children.”
The crusty old codger headed for the garage with his wife at his heels. Once there, Presutti allegedly pushed the woman to the floor and retrieved a gun from a nearby desk. The woman said her husband pointed the weapon at her, drew the slide back and said, “Now I want to kill you.”
The woman told police she ran from the garage, grabbed the couple’s two young sons and went to the bedroom where she called 911.
When police arrived, the gun was found in the garage with four rounds inside, the hammer pulled back and the safety mechanism in the off position. Presutti was found in his car a few blocks away from the residence.
Charged with aggravated assault, domestic battery and child neglect, Presutti remains behind bars on $510,000 bail.
Two things ran through my mind as I wrote this up: 1) Two young children? Either the wife is cheating or the old dude’s really got it going on! All hail Viagra! 2) Honey, if you’re in it for the money, give it up…based on his behavior, one would have to assume he’s damn well taking it with him when he goes.
