Get Off My Lawn

“I Would Have Shot Him” Florida Man, 90, Punches Neighbor In The Face Twice Gets Arrested

A 90-year-old Florida man was arrested after punching his neighbor in the face, twice.

According to investigators, Deputies responded to a neighborly dispute over a landscaper cutting the grass at a home in Sorrento, about 30 miles from Orlando.

90-year-old Thomas Conrad was allegedly yelling vulgar profanities at his neighbor and landscaper, telling them to get off his lawn, according to the complaint.

Depuites say the victim tried to reason with Conrad who then said, “I should punch you in the face.”

The victim responded saying, “Go ahead but I wouldn’t advise or police will be called.”

According to the complaint, 90-year-old Conrad did just that, punched his neighbor in the face twice.

When police make contact with Conrad, at his residence, he told police he “did nothing wrong” since the neighbor invited the two punches to the face.

According to the affidavit, Deputies asked Conrad what would have happened if the neighbor asked him to shoot him. Conrad responded, “Then I would have shot him.”

Deputies say when they advised Conrad that he committed the offense of battery, Conrad became “aggressive” and told Deputies to “Get the f**k out of my house.”

Conrad allegedly balled up his fist and refused to place his hands behind his back.

After a brief struggle with the 90-year-old man, deputies took Conrad into custody where he was booked into the county jail for battery and resisting police, both misdemeanors.
