    Mower ramming leads to arrest


    A man uses his Snapper to knock his neighbor off his lawn mower, authorities say.

    HOMOSASSA - Ralph L. Padgett told deputies he's had his differences with David Ervin before.

    But he says he climbed aboard his red Snapper lawn mower Friday night to ride out to his mailbox, not to ram Ervin's lawn mower or to knock him off the mower.

    A deputy says the latter is exactly what happened in the street in front of Padgett's home that night.

    Padgett, 73, was arrested at 9:49 p.m. on charges of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and criminal mischief between $200 to $1,000, according to a Citrus County Sheriff's Office report.

    Ervin of 6858 W Hans Court told deputies he was mowing along S Bob White Drive, when he saw Padgett driving toward him on a mower. The impact sent Ervin flying off the mower. He told deputies he hit his head and injured his left arm and elbow.

    A deputy who interviewed Ervin noticed his elbow was bleeding and his clothing and hair were dusted with grass clippings, according to the report.

    Ervin told deputies that he stood up and began to walk toward his house, but he noticed Padgett dragging away his, Ervin's, mower. Ervin grabbed the mower and called the Sheriff's Office.

    Padgett told a deputy he thought Ervin was going to hit him. He said he "was not going to allow him to hit me, so I got him," according to the report.

    He was taken to the Citrus County jail, where bail was set at $5,500.
