Police: Man tired of Greenwood School parents stopping in front of his driveway threatens one with a rifle

The Boston Police Department reports arresting a Greenwood Street resident who'd finally snapped at all the parents who stop in front of his driveway to pick up kids at the school across the street.

According to police, a father of a Greenwood School student pulled up in front of Henry Perry's house at 136 Greenwood St. around 3:30 p.m. yesterday.

Police say: "According to the victim, as he was waiting, the suspect began yelling at him from a third floor window. In short time, the victim says the suspect, with a rifle in his possession, appeared on the front porch and yelled, 'Park there tomorrow and you'll see what's up.' "

Police say the father immediately called 911. Police say that arriving officers found Perry and asked him if he'd just been involved in a gun incident, to which he allegedly replied: "I had an argument with a dude about parking in front of my driveway. I am tired of that (expletive)."

Perry, 59, was then arrested on charges of unlawful possession of a firearm and carrying a loaded weapon on a public way. Police say they seized a rifle scope from Perry's home.
