The Springfield Journal-Register reports 42-year-old Christopher Gordon has been charged by the Sangamon County State’s Attorney’s Office with unlawful use of a weapon and aggravated assault after being arrested in May for allegedly brandishing a gun and threatening to kill himself and a man he suspected was having an affair with his wife.

No action was taken during last Monday night’s school board meeting regarding Gordon or high school football coach Barry Creviston, who was arrested for DUI in April.

The SJ-R reports Gordon is next due in court on August 12th.
