Some projects have cost overruns. Others, power tool assaults.
A dispute among home contractors in Brookline turned ugly last weekend when one worker allegedly attacked his colleague with a weed whacker, police said.
The victim told authorities he was working Saturday at a residence on Allandale Rd. when another worker approached him with the whacker, Brookline police said in a statement.
“The victim stated that the weed whacker was running and his coworker thrust it towards his face striking him once before the victim knocked it away,” the release said. “The victim reported that the suspect then swung the weed whacker around and hit the victim on the other side of his face with the engine.”
A third person stepped in and halted further violence, according to police.
“Witnesses confirmed the victim’s story and the suspect was placed under arrest for assault & battery with a dangerous weapon,” the release said.
A message seeking further information, including the suspect’s name, was left with Brookline police officials on Thursday morning.
Arraignment details weren’t immediately available.
