Neighborhood argument leads to assault charges

Some may say that "good fences make good neighbors," but it is still the case that neighbors don't always see eye-to-eye. Sometimes, this means they'll simply ignore each other, but other times heated arguments can ensue. Such arguments ultimately lead to one or both parties being charged with a crime. For example, a 23-year-old Arizona man is facing aggravated assault charges for allegedly beating a 70-year-old man. However, the accused claims the older man hit him first.

The incident took place in Phoenix. According to police, the accused was driving above the posted speed limit in a neighborhood. The 70-year-old man, citing a concern for the welfare of children in the neighborhood, reportedly shouted at the accused to drive slower. At that point, police claim that the accused turned around and went to the man's residence and confronted him there.

Police claim the accused pushed the 70-year-old man down and struck and kicked his face. A witness to the reported event stopped the fight, but, when the witness went away, the accused reportedly began assaulting the other man again. Following that, the witness reportedly stopped him a second time.

The 70-year-old man's eye socket and nose were fractured in the incident. However, the accused told police that the other man struck the first blow. Nevertheless, the accused is now facing aggravated assault charges.

As this shows, oftentimes cases come down to he-said-she-said. It remains to be seen what will happen to the accused in this case. Sometimes, a person can argue they acted in self-defense. If a person is facing assault charges but believes they only acted to defend themselves, they may want to seek legal advice.
