MANHATTAN CRIMINAL COURT -- A Flatiron man accused of waving a gun at construction workers outside his apartment window said the weapon was actually his finger, and that he'd been driven to despair by the "damn drilling."

The man was arrested Wednesday for allegedly pointing a gun at workers who were outside his building on a scaffold to carry out work on a broken window. He's accused of yelling, "Don't touch my f---ing window or I'll shoot you."
