ROCHESTER, Pa. (AP) — An 80-year-old Pennsylvania man has been charged with using his lawn tractor to fling rocks and debris at neighbors and police.

The Beaver County Times (http://bit.ly/166Yh2q ) reports Donald Martin drove his tractor toward three neighbors after using the machine to pull a bush out of the ground in a property line dispute on June 21.

On July 3 and Aug. 30, police say Martin drove the tractor over bare ground so the mower would fling rocks and other debris at his neighbors and — in the last encounter — a responding police officer.

Martin, of Rochester Township, doesn’t have a listed phone number and online court records don’t list an attorney for him. He faces a preliminary hearing Sept. 24 on simple assault and other charges.
