Never point a leaf blower at someone or you could be in a world of trouble.

A man in Tennessee has been charged with simple assault for allegedly pointing a leaf blower at a woman who complained about debris on her car.

Judge Dan Brown ruled on Monday that there is probable cause to charge 33-year-old Michael Bridgewater Jr., of Southaven with simple assault in the July 5 incident.

Kelly Carraway, an employee of Stage Road Barber Shop in Bartlett, told police that she saw Bridgewater blowing grass-cutting debris onto her car and approached him.

She said that he “intentionally” pointed the still-running blower at her “in an offensive and provocative manner.”

Carraway said the blower “caused grass clippings, dirt and landscaping/parking lot debris to make physical contact with” her face.

She said that the incident led to respiratory problems that required medical attention.
