Dispute: A man reported a dispute with his former property manager, with whom he had been engaged in an argument for the past year. The man said he saw the property manager sitting in a van near his house.

The man followed the property manager and told him he did not want to see him on his property. The man said the property manager asked if he had a gun. When the man said no, the property manager made an indirect comment that he should, the man said. The property owner said he did not have a gun and did not imply that he did.
