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.
