County Sheriff’s Report

A dispute last week between neighbors in Hoytsville was diffused without incident after a man confronted his neighbor with a gun, authorities say.

"The man with the gun went down because another man with his dog was chasing his cows," Summit County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Greg Winterton said. "He went down there and told the man, "Get your dog or I’m going to shoot your dog."
