A 72-year-old Florida man was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after allegedly chasing down another man in a tractor.

A senior citizen in Florida is facing serious criminal charges after he was caught on video allegedly trying to attack his neighbor with a tractor.

Video of the event was released by State Attorney’s Office and the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office released 911 calls from the June 19 incident.

Howell Lamar Morris was arrested, according to the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office. He is allegedly the man in the video chasing Scott Lynch. Lynch’s wife took video of the incident and made two calls to police.

Howell Lamar Morris, 72, was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon on June 19, 2018 in St. Johns County, Florida.

In a 911 call she says, “Yeah, he chased him down on his tractor and my husband had to run, yes.”

When asked if the man in the tractor had a weapon, Scott Lynch can be heard in the background saying, “Other than his tractor? No.”

In the initial call to police, Lynch’s wife said the altercation was part of an ongoing property dispute.

Morris was released on June 20 on bond of $2,500.
