How do you deal with your neighbor’s kid turning their ATV around in your driveway? One way you DON’T is by holding them at gunpoint! What makes you a bad neighbor?
The Southport, Florida police recently arrested Jerry Fulcher for threatening six kids with a gun. The children, ages 4 through 16, were turning their ATV around in Fulcher’s driveway when he came out with a handgun and ordered the kids to put their hands on their heads and lie down on the ground. The 16-year-old driver apologized, but Fulcher pointed the gun at his head and said he'd be the “first to go.” The teens were ordered to call their mother so she could come pick them up. The mother arrived and called 911. Fulcher was charged with one count of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and six counts each of aggravated assault and false imprisonment.
As a kid, the loud and rowdy teenageers (and sometimes their families as well) were THAT neighbor where I lived. Whether it's being nitpicky about other people's lawns or making too much noise, every street and neighborhood has its own issues (though not always quite as dramatic as being held at gunpoint for turning an ATV around in someone elses driveway...)
