A Tennessee man could possibly face assault charges for aiming his leaf blower at a woman in a business parking lot, The Commercial Appeal of Memphis reports.
For sending debris flying into the woman’s face, the man could find himself spending a bit of time behind bars. Assuming, of course, that a jury decides that a leaf blower is a means of assault.
The incident reportedly began when Kelly Carraway and another woman approached 33-year-old Michael David Bridgewater Jr. about the grass clippings and various waste that were hitting their cars in the Hollywood Cinema parking lot.
According to the affidavit, Bridgewater allegedly turned his leaf blower in the poor woman’s general direction, resulting in all sorts of “grass clippings, dirt, and landscaping/parking lot debris” being forcefully shoved into her nasal passages.
Complications from the incident ultimately forced the victim to pay a visit to her family physician for treatment.
