DAYTON, Ohio — Snow shoveling amid a brutal winter storm got ugly Tuesday afternoon when two women who share a common driveway clashed and one of them set loose a stream of pepper spray at the other.
Police were called around 3:30 p.m. to 1314 Amherst Place, said Dayton Police Lt. John Bardun.
The story police were told was this: One of the women was shoveling snow on the common driveway. Her neighbor came outside and apparently began disputing the shoveling and an argument then began over the shared property line.
At one point, police say, one of the women threatened the other with her snow shovel, and the woman being menaced then pulled out a pepper spray can and hit the button.
Officers separated the two and wrote up a complaint for each, instructing them to report to the Montgomery County Prosecutor's Office, which will investigate the incident and determine whether any charges are necessary. There were no serious injuries, Bardun said. One of the women is 38-years-old and the other 45, Bardun said. Neighbor trouble has been reported at the address for some time, he added. http://www.daytondailynews.com/n/con...pepperweb.html
