A 35-year-old man fired several shots from a 12-gauge shotgun during a heated argument with a Cutchogue woman at the man’s Riverhead house early Wednesday, police said.

Cops said Clint Marczewski also held the woman, 35, against her will during the incident at 24 Fairway Avenue, off Hubbard Avenue.

Police responded to the address for reports of shots fired about 3:45 a.m., when it was determined Mr. Marczewski fired the weapon inside and outside of the house during the dispute, officials said. The woman was not injured during the ordeal.

Mr. Marczewski was treated at Peconic Bay Medical Center for a laceration he suffered while firing the shotgun, police said.

He’s being held on charges of first-degree unlawful imprisonment, first-degree reckless endangerment and two counts of second-degree menacing.

He will be appearing in Town Justice Court for an arraignment.

Mr. Marczewski was also recently arrested twice in Southold Town on drug charges, according to Southold Town Police reports. He was arrested in February 2011 after he was found with crack cocaine and heroin in his possession and also in May 2010 on a heroin possession charge.

He was also arrested in September 2009 after he he threatened another man with a knife and gun then attempted to kick out the windows of a police car, according to Newsday.
