Gahanna police said they intervened when a resident refused to let city code-enforcement workers mow his yard.

Police received a report at 10:05 a.m. July 9 that a Denwood Court resident would not allow workers -- who have the authority under city zoning to go onto someone's property and cut grass when they are in violation -- into the yard.

The resident was being confrontational with the city-hired lawn crew, reports said. Police stood by with a city zoning officer while the crew cut the lawn, reports said. The resident calmed down and went into the house as the crew was finishing, reports said.
