I'm afraid I'm going to need some more information before Rude gets any of my money. If barking dogs are a problem, call the cops. If the dogs are barking because they're being neglected, call the ASPCA. I find it very hard to trust a man who can't get along with his neighbor. And apparently the law thought Rude was the one in the wrong here. My first guess is: Mister six-foot-five Nick Nolte lookalike
thought he was going to be intimidating.
From CBR: "While details are scant, the Maricopa County (Arizona) Sheriff’s Office lists the Nexus co-creator as being held on charges of assault and failure to comply with a court order."
So apparently the neighbor already had a restraining order against him.
