AJC: Decatur man threatened tree removal crew with rifle

Posted by Dan Whisenhunt October 20, 2013

The Atlanta Journal Constitution published a story Sunday about the tree removal moratorium being considered at Monday’s Decatur City Commission meeting, but the most interesting part of the story is a few paragraphs deep …

“That atmosphere is being blamed for an incident last week, when 67-year-old Barry Huffman approached a tree-removal crew and, a police report alleges, began ‘verbally assaulting and cursing’ one of the workers.”

The AJC, citing a police report, says the man went to his home and came back to the scene with his rifle.

I’m requesting the police report to see if there are any other interesting details. Pretty amazing story, though.
