A resident of the Trebo Road area complained to police that a man had blocked the road and threatened her son. The son said he was driving up the dirt road at about 10 mph, listening to loud music when he looked in his rear view mirror and saw a vehicle speeding up behind him. The driver then passed, pulled in front of him and stopped the vehicle so that it was sideways, the son told police. According to the police report, the man exited the vehicle, walked toward the son’s car and began yelling at him for playing the music loudly, at one point saying, “Don’t play your music loud past my house again.” The son told police that he repeatedly asked the man to move the vehicle and remove his hands from his car so that he could go home. The son did take three pictures of the blocking vehicle and the man. When the son returned home, he told his mother about the incident. The two came to the Police Department to report the incident. The man and his wife also came to the Police Department. The man said that he and his wife were at the edge of the road fixing their mailbox when the son drove by playing loud music and almost hit them. He said he had to grab his wife to prevent her from getting hit. He added that the driver was traveling at 4 to 5 mph and was probably drunk or high. He also said the son was driving on the opposite side of the road and ran a neighbor off the road. The man said when he approached the son, he could smell marijuana and booze.  The neighbor who supposedly was driven off the road told officers she had “no idea what he was talking  about and was not even in town” at the time of the incident. The man was charged with careless and negligent reckless driving and disorderly conduct.
