Neighbor Dispute Leads To Advice From Deputy

Sometimes calling the law doesn't really help. The sheriff's department says an officer was dispatched to a home north of Cookeville this week to talk to a man who claimed that his neighbor yells at him and his children and makes harassing type motions whenever they are outside. The neighbor, on the other hand, told a deputy that he had been having problems with the other guy and his family for a long time, including an incident in which the neighbor kids allegedly padlocked his mailbox. Authorities told both parties that they could contact a private attorney or work through the clerk's office to pursue charges if they wish.
