According to a news release issued by the Hellertown Police Department Monday, Gregory Alan Fox was outside a home in the 100 block of Constitution Avenue on the evening of May 24 when he allegedly threatened “that he was going to break in…through the screen glass door while shaking the door.”

After being arrested, Fox was arraigned before Northampton County District Judge Douglas Schlegel on a misdemeanor charge of Terroristic Threats Causing Serious Public Inconvenience and a summary charge of Public Drunkenness and Similar Misconduct, according to the court docket filed in his case.
