A Greenfield resident called police to report her son was assaulted by a neighbor with a broom and the neighbor flagged down police car at about 2:25 p.m. March 2.
According to the Greenfield police report:
A resident in the 5600 block of South 43rd Street called police and said her neighbor struck her son with a broom and got snow inside of his truck.
The neighbor left before police arrived at the residence, but flagged down an officer on 43rd Street and Layton Avenue, and he claimed that the caller's son threw a can at him and assaulted him with a broom.
Police determined these complaints were part of an ongoing neighbor dispute, and the root of this particular problem seemed to be a snow fence between the two properties. Both the caller's son and the neighbor were given the option of both being arrested for disorderly conduct or dropping their complaints against each other.
They were warned and advised about their conduct toward each other after they opted for the latter.
