Sheriff’s Office

A Springfield woman reported Tuesday night that a neighbor struck her in her left leg with a shovel, according to a sheriff’s office incident report.

The neighbor said the woman wouldn’t leave his yard. The report doesn’t indicate if the neighbor said he hit the woman with a shovel.

The neighbor told deputies that he was shoveling dog waste when the woman came into his yard without being asked.

The woman allowed her children to climb a tree in his front yard and he didn’t want to be responsible for the children possibly getting injured, the man said. He told deputies that he asked the woman to leave.

A deputy noted the woman smelled like alcohol.

“I was unable to photograph the injuries due to no physical manifestation of injuries,” the deputy wrote in his report.

In an unrelated matter, a Cope woman called deputies to her Cannon Bridge Road home on Tuesday morning to report that various tools, a jack and a jack stand were stolen.

The items are valued at $1,350.
