Man arrested after allegedly pulling gun on neighbor over trash dispute


Joseph Patrick Davis, 28, was arrested yesterday after he allegedly pulled out a gun during a dispute with a neighbor over trash.

Davis and a neighbor were reportedly involved in an altercation around 5:00 p.m. yesterday over trash being placed in each others’ front yards, a feud that has been going on for several months.

According to the arrest report, Davis threw a trash bag into his neighbor’s front yard, and the neighbor then threw trash back toward Davis’ front yard; Davis then threw a trash bag toward his neighbor, and the neighbor threw the trash bag back toward Davis.

Davis then allegedly pulled a firearm from a bag he was carrying and began to pace back and forth, yelling at the neighbor and continuing to throw trash. The incident was reportedly captured on Davis’ doorbell camera. Davis reportedly held the gun at his side, but the neighbor told the responding officer she was in great fear for her life.

Post Miranda, Davis reportedly admitted that he bought the gun because of the ongoing dispute with his neighbor. Davis reportedly does not have a concealed carry permit.

Davis has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill and carrying a concealed weapon without a license. He is being held on $20,000 bond.
