Here’s a guy with his own surefire doggie waste removal plan. August 31, 2012

A Palm Bay man was arrested after threatening a neighbor who let his pit bull dog defecate on the man’s grass, according to a police report.

The incident occurred about noon Wednesday in the 800 block of Gillen Avenue NW and ended in the arrest of Joseph M. Williams, 55, on a charge of aggravated assault with a firearm. 

According to the police report, Williams said he grabbed his gun and came out of his garage after an altercation with a neighbor about the neighbor’s dog’s activities in his grass. Williams said he was afraid of the pit bull and kept the gun in the holster, according to the police report. 

The victim told police he was afraid he would be shot, and that Williams made a comment to the effect, “set him loose.” 

Williams was held in jail on $5,000 bond and was released today.
