In a news release issued Thursday, police said Larry Rohs, of the 2000 block of Pearson Avenue, was approached by his neighbor and asked what he was doing on the property.

At that point police said Rohs dismounted the tractor “and charged the victim, taking a swing at him.”

Rohs was charged with disorderly conduct, police said in the news release.

Authorities did not say why Rohs allegedly attempted to landscape the other man’s property, however in an Express-Times article, Rohs was quoted as saying that he didn’t do that or attempt to punch the man.

According to the article, Rohs said he was trying to clear away branches and leaves in the street when his neighbor became hostile and pushed him to the ground.
