A confrontation between neighbors in Handy Township arose during a pizza delivery that escalated to one man being arrested on charges of felonious assault, according to a police report from the Livingston County Sheriff’s Department.
Police say that on Dec. 26, a pizza deliveryman from Hungry Howie’s stopped at a driveway on the 5000 block of Jamerlea Lane around 6 p.m. and asked a woman who was shoveling her driveway if he could park there.
According to the report, the deliveryman explained that he couldn’t make it any father up the road due to the snow and the woman said he could leave the car there.
The man who placed the pizza order saw the deliveryman in the other driveway and told police he yelled at driver saying, “hey retard, over here.”
According to the report, the woman yelled back at the neighbor, telling him to leave the driver alone and then told the driver that if it were her, she wouldn’t deliver the pizza.
Police say the man was yelling at the driver and the woman when the woman’s husband came out of the house. The husband then proceeded to yell back at the neighbor until he went back inside.
According to the report, the male neighbor told police he returned back outside to walk his dog and the fighting continued, which is when another adult resident from the original home became involved.
Police say the third man walked to his car and retrieved a black semi automatic style handgun and threatened the man who had ordered the pizza. The neighbor told police the man raised a gun at him and continued with verbal threats. Witnesses and the suspect, however, told police he never raised the gun.
The gun was located in the suspect’s truck and suspect was placed under arrest on charges of felonious assault.
