A Springfield alderman says a police report accusing him of knocking a neighbor to the ground last month is just the latest in a series of run-ins that he and a number of other neighbors have had with the woman.
No charges were filed after that complaint was lodged against Alderman Cory Jobe last month.
The woman told police that Jobe knocked her down during a heated argument.
But Jobe says the woman was obstructing the gate to his yard and fell down as he opened the gate.
The woman was not injured.
Jobe says he and other neighbors have frequently had to report the woman for code violations on her property, and notes that such disputes between neighbors can often be difficult.
