GARDENS OF GULF COVE — An elderly man has been accused of assaulting a lawn-care worker who wouldn’t do him a favor by removing some weeds from his neighbor’s yard, according to a Charlotte County Sheriff’s report.
Around 4 p.m. Wednesday, a crew from a lawn-care company was working on the yard of a home on Thorman Road. A man — later identified as Patrick Botelho, 71 — came out of the home next door and asked a man mowing the lawn why the flowerbeds weren’t being trimmed. Botelho demanded the flowerbeds be trimmed because weeds from the beds were reaching over to his property, the report shows.
