A dispute between Jacksonville neighbors over grass clippings involved one man armed with two small knives vs. another with a machete and five Rottweilers. When police said the one threatened to sic his dogs on an officer, that was enough to get him arrested Tuesday.

Officers found 44-year-old Bobby Riggs Williams screaming and making racial comments toward David Burke when they arrived to the 10400 block of Ebbitt Road about 11:15 a.m., according to the arrest report. Williams is black.

The neighbor, whose age and race were not listed, told police he took out a pocket knife for protection after Williams threatened him about grass clippings that were blown onto his property, the report said.

The neighbor said Williams got a machete from his car and returned raising it toward him and threatening to kill him, the report said. Burke armed himself with a second small knife and told Williams to leave, which he eventually did.

When police tried to get Williams to come outside his chain-link fence, they said he refused and repeatedly said he would release his dogs to attack, the report said.

By about 2 p.m. officers were able to get Williams to leave his property. He was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer and resisting arrest.

    I have nothing against homosexuals. I think an orgasm is your thing, and you should f#ck whoever the f#ck you feel like f#cking. Whoever makes you come the hardest. Anybody who says you shouldn’t, politely tell them to mind their own business.

      And this has to do with this article in what way? Or did you come here to just shoot your mouth off?

        @Johnny Cirrito… this little ditty may steer this back to the machete…

        One day at the end of class little Johnny’s teacher has the class go home and think of a story and then conclude the moral of that story. The following day the teacher asks for the first volunteer to tell their story, little Suzy raises her hand.”My dad owns a farm and every Sunday we load the chicken eggs on the truck and drive into town to sell them at the market. Well, one Sunday we hit a big bump and all the eggs flew out of the basket and onto the road.”The teacher asks for the moral of the story. Suzy replies, “Don’t keep all your eggs in one basket.”Next is little Lucy. “Well my dad owns a farm too and every weekend we take the chicken eggs and put them in the incubator. Last weekend only 8 of the 12 eggs hatched.”The teacher asks for the moral of the story. Lucy replies “Don’t count your eggs before they’re hatched.”Last is little Johnny. “My uncle Ted fought in the Vietnam war; his plane was shot down over enemy territory. He jumped out before it crashed with only a case of beer, a machine gun and a machete. On the way down he drank the case of beer. Unfortunately, he landed right in the middle of 100 Vietnamese soldiers. He shot 70 with his machine gun, but ran out of bullets, so he pulled out his machete and killed 20 more. The blade on his machete broke, so he killed the last ten with his bare hands”.Teacher looks in shock at Johnny and asks if there is possibly any moral to his story.Johnny replies, “Don’t f#ck with uncle Ted when he’s been drinking!”
