CLEARFIELD – A Curwensville man accused of aiming a shotgun at a couple and threatening them waived the charges to court Wednesday at the Clearfield County Jail.

Andrew James Blake, 23, of Curwensville has been charged by state police at Clearfield with two counts each of terroristic threats, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person and harassment. Bail has been set at $25,000.

According to the affidavit of probable cause, around 9:06 Jan. 3, Blake was being taken by a couple to his residence on Mcdivitt Road in Ferguson Township. After being dropped off, he sent a text message to the male, saying he’d driven too fast with kids in the vehicle.

Blake called the male and told him to come back down. When the couple returned, Blake was observed walking up McDivitt Road and he was carrying something. The male stopped and opened the driver’s door, at which point Blake walked around the door and allegedly aimed a shotgun at him, stating: “I’m going to blow your [expletive] brains out.”

Blake repeated the same threat to the female passenger. The couple then left the area and called 911.
