A 17-year-old was arrested for threatening to “do a drive-by, old-school” on a Queens councilman and his family, authorities said Thursday.
Ariel Gershkovich is facing harassment charges for allegedly calling Councilman Rory Lancman’s home repeatedly on Tuesday, officials said.
After receiving three heated, obscenity-filled calls from Gershkovich, Lancman (D-Queens) let the calls go to his voicemail.
That’s when Gershkovich started threatening the legislator with violence.
“Call me back or I’m going to do a drive-by, old-school on you and your family,” Gershkovich said, according to officials.
Cops took the teen into custody without incident on Wednesday. No weapons were found.
Officials said Gershkovich was outraged over “the councilman’s policies.” They didn’t specify which policies.
