“I want answers:” Dispute leads man in Tennessee to drive a bulldozer through his neighbor’s home
DRUMMONDS, Tennessee — Authorities say a dispute led a man in Tennessee to drive a bulldozer through his neighbor’s home. It all started with reports of gunshots on Friday, September 2nd.
John Higdon told authorities he started shooting at several people in camouflage suits running around and hiding in the woods behind his home.
After deputies arrived, they searched the area, but didn’t find anyone.
Higdon was arrested for reckless endangerment.
Authorities say while he was in jail, his neighbor, Edgar McClellan, knocked down his house with a backhoe.
Higdon’s brother, Sammy said he’s outraged.
“This man over here decides to come over here at two o’clock in the morning, comes over here at two o’clock in the morning with a dozer, a tractor and starts pushing the house down. I ain’t ever seen nobody who can go and push someone’s house down. I want answers and I want him to pay for the damages, what he done,” Sammy Higdon said.
McClellan has been charged with trespassing and felony vandalism.
Both McClellan and John Higdon are out on bond and awaiting their court date.
More charges could be filed.
