Not to exploit the inner city slang chlich├ęs, but Kevin Brown was strapped, he was getting ready to pop some one, in fact, he was ready to put two in his neighbor’s chest. brown_hand.jpg

The former million dollar journey-man got into a heated, uhm (pun intended?), argument with his neighbor over some grass. No, not reefer, just… grass. Turns out that Brown likes to get back at people who dump junk on his yard by dumping twigs, limbs, or grass clippings onto theirs.

Brown, baseball’s first “$100 million-dollar man,” told deputies that he carries a gun while strolling through the woods because he often sees snakes, and had seen one the previous day.

“The guy admits he was dumping stuff on my property,” Brown told The Associated Press. “I have more than a few neighbors. Some of them dump trash onto my property. If I see it I’ll put a limb over the fence into their yard. It’s a subtle way of saying ‘please stop dumping.'”

“He got irate and he threatened me, he’s threatening to take me out. I stepped back away from the fence, took the gun out of my pocket and held it by my side. I think it was something anybody would have done in my situation.”

He was in a McIntyre, GA, state of mind.
