Oklahoma City homeowners association president arrested after argument

A 73-year-old man was arrested on multiple complaints including assault with a dangerous weapon after he and a neighbor got into a dispute about their homeowners association, Oklahoma City police said Monday.

A.B. Simpson was arrested on complaints of assault and battery, assault with a dangerous weapon and pointing a firearm after the altercation Thursday.

According to a police report, Simpson, the president of a homeowners association, got into an argument with another member of the association's board, Bivian Cox, 79, inside Simpson's home.

Cox told police Simpson pulled a silver revolver on him and hit him several times. Cox had minor injuries, including a cut on his right hand.
A few weeks back, a Philippine HOA prez who made a point of letting one of his unhappy constituents know he packed an AK-47 was mentioned on this blog. "And you thought your HOA president was bad?" the good perfessor asked rhetorically. In at least one HOA, it could indeed be worse if this account is accurate.

One? When you have some time I will be happy to let you know about some of the homeowner associations from hell, their board members, horrible, illegal, immoral, unethical acts on an innocent homeowners, their hired talent and some systems of injustice that encourage, this "New Domestic Violence," Homeowner Abuse (HOA Syndrome) and property theft. There should be a national data base of these abusive boards, board members, "associates," and any one having any affiliation, along with credible background checks, by a third party with no vested interest, etc...

My agent told me about a script based on this account and asked if I would be interested in playing the role of A.B. Simpson.
