Allen Riggs' choice of activities went beyond playing on his phone one night in Myrtle Beach.

Things Get Noisy

When the 24-year-old heard his ex-spouse Jolynn Wolfrey and her boyfriend doing the nasty upstairs in the duplex they shared, he became incensed.

Putting A Stop To It

Riggs began “banging on the walls” in order to get them to stop. When that didn't work, he reportedly went out to his vehicle and got his gun. Wolfrey heard the racking sound of the firearm through the floor.

...Well that's one way to cock block...

Wolfrey said that when she later went downstairs, Riggs, gun in hand, threatened her life.

The story doesn't end there, though. After getting his ex's attention, Riggs went back to the couch and resumed his game on his mobile phone. Riggs reportedly told the police that he had been attempting to “ruin the mood” with the gun and had no intention of using it against Wolfrey or her boyfriend.

Riggs and Wolfrey, both 24, are “ex-spouses for approximately 2 years and live together,” cops reported.

The Charges

Police confiscated a 9mm pistol from Riggs, who was booked into the county jail on a felony rap. Riggs, seen above, is being held in lieu of $100,000 bond.

In a situation as bizarre as this, it's hard to know who to believe. Hopefully, whatever really happened that night is uncovered soon, and everyone involved can move on from this frightening incident.
