Oh that did not end well for her…..
We all have that one neighbord, don't we?
The one who is irrational and makes the neighborhood a bad place.
Ever wanted to turn the hose on them?
This man did.
According to Local KXAN, the dispute was over a Black Lives Matter sign the woman was upset that someone else had put up:
A now-viral video of a southwest Austin man spraying a woman with a hose after she berated a neighbor for having a Black Lives Matter flag in her yard is setting social media on fire.
Ian Doherty said he was standing up to a bully during the incident Oct. 7.
He, along with multiple neighbors, heard the woman screaming about the flag and saying “white lives matter” during the altercation. The argument lasted about 30 minutes, Doherty said, and the woman yelled about other things in the neighbor’s yard, but the BLM flag being more visible than the American flag was what sparked the outrage.
After Doherty went outside and asked the woman to stop yelling at his neighbor about five minutes into the argument, the woman snapped at him.
“She told me where to stuff it,” Doherty said. “I don’t remember her exact words, but she swore at me, yelled at me, and then I blew it off.”
Ten minutes later, he said he got the now internet-famous hose and sprinkler out. Videos shot by neighbors show the sprinkler in the corner of his yard with the water going in the street, drenching the woman’s car she parked in the middle of the street before the argument began.
He then picked up the sprinkler and pointed it at her car, something he hoped would encourage her to leave but prompted the woman to walk on his lawn and attempt to grab the sprinkler. Doherty responded by spraying the woman with water as she slipped on the curb several times trying to lunge at him, the video shows.
“She adopts a really aggressive stance, and she told me to turn my water hose off, and I just wasn’t going to do it,” Doherty said. “I’m on my property, and she was being ridiculous and abusive and saying the worst things for half an hour. I’m not going to back down on my property.”
KXAN reached out to the woman in the video, who did not want to comment on the record. Her lawyer sent KXAN a letter Thursday saying “the online article is filled with half-truths and flat out deceptive statements,” but did not elaborate.
“The neighbors have all made peace with one another and there is nothing to be gained by stirring things up again,” the lawyer wrote.
I was sure this lady was a Biden supporter, but it looks like maybe not.
Either way, bad behavior is bad behavior and this lady didn't do herself any favors.
