5/21, 10:20 a.m. – Officers called to scene to break up wrestling match between two middle-aged males in cul-de-sac. According to witnesses, Neighbor A had been taunting Neighbor B for two days about his expensive LawnBott battery-powered robotic lawnmower, calling him a “lazy yuppie.”
Neighbor B had objected to noise and exhaust from Neighbor A’s 30-year-old push mower with smoking Briggs and Stratton engine and rusted muffler, calling him a “redneck townie.” Shouting match quickly escalated to skirmish and then to "freestyle wrestling."
Police cars rushed to the scene but were blocked by seven commercial landscape trucks flanking side street. By the time they reached the men, one had a bloody nose and torn polo shirt; the other suffered from mild abrasions and “extreme heartburn.”
