A less-than-neighbourly dispute in downtown Kingston came to a head when the aggressor in the conflict came at his neighbour with a snow blower, according to Kingston Police.
The dispute took place on Wednesday, Feb. 13, 2019 at approximately 2:30 p.m. when the victim was shoveling the driveway of his residence. The accused man, his neighbour, confronted the victim and began yelling obscenities at the victim for shoveling snow onto his vehicle.
The accused man then turned on his snow blower and began to push it toward the victim, blowing snow in his direction. The accused man continued yelling and came within a few feet of the victim, who attempted to step out of the way. The victim was forced to place a shovel between himself and the snow blower to avoid injury. Finally, the accused stopped, backed up the snow blower, and put it away.
Police were called and subsequently arrested the accused man. The 52-year-old Kingston man was charged with two counts of breach of recognizance.
