The president of the Starpoint Board of Education is accused of threatening her husband with a handgun in a town park Friday night.

Patricia A. Meisenburg, 49, of 6735 Shawnee Road, was charged with second-degree reckless endangerment, second-degree menacing and disorderly conduct, Sheriff's Deputy Maurice Britt said.

Wheatfield Town Justice Robert B. Cliffe Tuesday evening adjourned the case until Aug. 19.

The incident occurred at 9:15 p.m. Friday in Fairmount Park. A witness, Trevor Zayatz of North Tonawanda, told Britt he and others saw Mrs. Meisenburg rolling around on the ground with her husband, David, who also is 49.

Britt said Mrs. Meisenburg had a .22-caliber weapon in her hand, which Zayatz removed before summoning deputies, who happened to be near the park on Steig Road investigating an unrelated complaint.

The Meisenburgs said they had been having marital problems, Britt reported. David Meisenburg told Britt he thought his wife was planning to shoot holes in his truck.

Mrs. Meisenburg was released without bail.
