A Carlisle woman pointed a gun at a man walking his dog during a dispute Saturday, borough police say. 

The incident allegedly occurred at 12:10 p.m. in the 100 block of North East Street. 

Officers "spoke with both parties and learned that the dispute began over where the dog was defecating," police said in a Crimewatch website post. "The male stated that the accused, Teresa Miller, pointed a handgun at him and the dog through a window of her residence and made a threat of violence."

The handgun was loaded, police said. 

Miller was charged with terroristic threats with intent to terrorize another, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person and disorderly conduct, according to court documents.
