Southampton Blotter: Cops bust Flanders dad for threatening teens

A Flanders man was arrested for allegedly threatening two teenagers he claims were picking on his daughter last Monday afternoon, according to Southampton Town Police.

Kevin Fleming, 47, of Priscilla Avenue in Flanders followed a school bus to the stop of two 15-year-old boys on Riverside Avenue in Flanders, after his daughter complained that she was being picked on by them, according to police.

Mr. Fleming is accused of then yelling threats at the two 15-year-olds, pushing one of them and chest-bumping the other, according to police.

A police incident report states that Mr. Fleming told the boys, “If you mess with my daughter, I’ll snap your neck and punch you in the face and you’ll swallow your teeth.”

One of the boys also told police Mr. Fleming pushed his friend into the front of the bus, according to the report.

The parents of the two students then came to police headquarters to file harassment charges against Mr. Fleming, who was arrested on a civilian arrest while an officer interviewed him at his home.
