Gives a whole new meaning to "get off my lawn"

SWAT gets called because a guy’s lawn is too tall.

In actuality, they were called because when city workers showed up to cut the grass, the homeowner pointed a gun at them. I’m pretty sure SWAT callouts for lawncare are not what Mayor Ballard had in mind when he said he was “tough on crime”.

  1. I gotta say the five-oh made a good call on this one. When you’ve got a guy holed up in a house sticking a gauge out the windows in a crowded urban neighborhood and threatening to shoot, you don’t send Reed & Malloy up to knock on the door.

  2. Oh, I actually agree, I just think the underlying justification is weird. I mean seriously, who threatens to shoot city workers over their lawn?

    People who have severe mental disorders.

    IME, I’d say paranoid schizophrenia.
