No Cussin’ Around the Kids!

 Laurens Police Officer Jody Thidobeau was dispatched to the 600 block of Watts Avenue at 7:25 last evening on a report of a damaged vehicle. A woman said a man had driven his car off the road near her house while her family was outside cooking on a grill. She further said the man became loud, using profanity and causing a scene. A neighbor man then approached the subject and asked him to ‘tone it down’ because their children were outside. The subject then reportedly became hostile towards both local residents and allegedly threatened to “shoot up the house.” He also told the man where he’d be if he wanted a fight. The man then reportedly took a stick and struck vehicles belonging to both victims before leaving.
