The landlord, who had the flu, was sleeping when his month-to-month tenant banged on the landlord’s door, yelled and came into the landlord’s home.

The landlord told the tenant to leave. The tenant refused and the men began to wrestle. They rolled down a set of stairs and the landlord called 911.

Then the tenant brought a carpenter’s triangle, a measuring tool, into the home to hurt the landlord, but the landlord’s door was locked.

The tenant had a gash on his head and blood on his hands and shirt and there was blood throughout the landlord’s home when a sheriff’s deputy arrived.

The tenant said he and his landlord were friends and that the landlord had pushed him down the stairs. The landlord wanted the tenant, to whom he had been renting for about six months, to leave.

The tenant was taken to jail after he went to the hospital.
