Can my previous landlord press charges regarding a refrigerator that I took?

Question Details: My previous boss/ landlord bought my family a fridge as a gift. He does not typically furnish them and we did not have one, so he said that he would buy one for us. When I moved out I took the fridge with me. He is now threatening to press charges. I told him he can have it back but I do not have the means, unless I rent a truck, to get it back to the house. He said I have until the end of the day today but don't get paid until Tuesday. I don't know what to do.
