Driveway rage: Police say man tired of parents stopping in front of his driveway to pick up kids threatened one with a rifle
Boston Police report arresting a Greenwood Street resident who'd allegedly finally snapped at all the parents who stop in front of his driveway to pick up kids at the school across the street.
According to police, a father of a Greenwood School student pulled up in front of Henry Perry's house at 136 Greenwood St. around 3:30 p.m. yesterday.
According to the victim, as he was waiting, the suspect began yelling at him from a third floor window. In short time, the victim says the suspect, with a rifle in his possession, appeared on the front porch and yelled, "Park there tomorrow and you'll see what's up."
Police say the father immediately called 911. Police say that arriving officers found Perry and asked him if he'd just been involved in a gun incident, to which he allegedly replied:
I had an argument with a dude about parking in front of my driveway. I am tired of that shit.
Perry, 59, was then arrested on charges of unlawful possession of a firearm and carrying a loaded weapon on a public way. Police say they seized a rifle scope from Perry's home.
