Police: Homeowner attacked HOA board member

 

A man who allegedly expressed anger against his Home Owner's Association by wielding a hammer and two-by-four at a board member was arrested by police on Wednesday.

Suspect Wade Ang, 36, was angry with the Home Owner's Association for his townhouse complex because the association had not followed through with repairs to his unit on the 0 block of Royal Court Road, said police spokesperson Liz Wylie.

Ang approached one of the association's board members with a hammer and allegedly threatened him at around 8:30 a.m., Wylie said. The victim was able to get the hammer away from Ang and threw it in the bushes.

But Ang allegedly grabbed a wooden two-by-four and swung it at the victim. Ang then allegedly pushed the victim to the ground, and stood over him swinging, threatening the victim again, Wylie said. Construction workers, who saw the fight, were able to disarm Ang, and the victim called the police.

Police arrested Wade on charges of assault with a deadly weapon and battery.

8:30 in the morning is a bit early to be out of control. Maybe he was on an all night bender.

If I had a hammer
I'd hammer in the morning
I'd hammer in the evening
All over this land
I'd hammer out danger
I'd hammer out a warning
I'd hammer out love between my brothers and my sisters
All over this land

When neighbors are having troubles, a great alternative is to seek out mediation. In Mountain View, the city sponsors the Mountain View Mediation Program (Web Link). Mediation lets the parties hash out their issues in a safe, neutral setting. And most importantly, lets them find their own solution with the guidance of trained mediators. The program has a tremendous success rate.
