Police say they had to arrest a woman after she allegedly pulled a gun on a man doing yard work with a leaf blower.

The incident happened around 9:20 a.m. Tuesday along Somersworth Drive, off of Van Maren Lane, Citrus Heights Police told FOX40.

Citrus Heights Police say that the man was doing some yard work near 51-year-old Becky Allen’s home when she came out of the home agitated about the noise of the leaf blower. After confronting the man once, police say, she went back in her home and soon came back out with a gun.

Allen allegedly pointed the gun at the worker and threatened to shoot him.

The man called 911 and Allen was soon arrested.

Allen has since been released from custody at Sacramento County Jail.

    I know everyone has been tempted to do the same thing! Come on! Landscapers are one of THE most annoying things to wake up to in the morning; especially if you work the night shift, or it is your day off.

    OVNative – yes nearly all have been irriated by the noise of landscapers. But it was after 9am! Even if she has a night job, I don't give a sht! She needs to get a clue! You don't threaten someone with a gun over noise.
