An arrest warrant has been issued for a Massachusetts fire lieutenant accused of threatening a woman back in December.

Whitman Police confirmed to NBC10 Boston the arrest warrant has been issued for Braintree Fire Lt. Kevin MacAleese.

According to the Patriot Ledger, the 53-year-old was charged with threatening to commit a crime stemming from a Dec. 13 incident.
