    This same person was tearing up the field at Hearthstone Manor and racing through Shawnee Acres on the night of April 6th. He charged at me with the 4 wheeler at least 6 times as well as drove on my property. I fianally had enough and made it very clear I was armed and would shoot if he charged at me again. He did the same thing on the day of the incident that he crashed, my wife was the person who called to police. I would like to see him charged with threatening bodily harm, and tresspassing as well.
