Officers arrived and found that a moving company was hired by a resident, and the company’s owner was concerned he wouldn’t be paid.

He asked for payment with one truck left to unload and an argument broke out.

Officers took the parties into custody at gunpoint and cleared the home. The man with the gun had a permit to carry it and he told police he never threatened anyone with the weapon.

Still, the resident refused to pay the fee and the moving company refused to unload the last truck.

"Neither party would budge," the report says.

The moving company left with the items and without being paid.

The moving company owner later told police he was receiving threatening text messages from the resident.
